Abstract

The assigned anomalous upconversion emission intensity of the ⁵D₀ → ⁷F₄ transition of Eu³⁺ in the double perovskite Sr₂Ca(W₁₋ₓMoₓ)O₆ co-doped with Yb³⁺ is shown to be due to a transition metal impurity present in the MoO3 starting material. Relevant literature shows that the highest energy ⁵D₀ → ⁷F₄ transition is at a longer wavelength than 685 nm in molybdates. Cases of anomalous intensity of this transition are reviewed. Our 360 nm excited emission spectra of Sr₂Ca₀.₈₈Eu₀.₀₂Yb₀.₀₄Li₀.₀₆MoO₆ show a very weak ⁵D₀ → ⁷F₄ transition, but on co-doping with Mn a structured band between 640 and 710 nm is observed due to Mn⁴⁺.
