The radiative properties of Dy-doped glasses and glass-ceramic phosphors with varying lead and cadmium fluoride content are investigated in the present study for white light emitting applications. The precipitation of cubic lead fluoride phase of 10-18 nm crystallites was determined with the help of x-ray diffraction studies and the nanocrystalline nature was confirmed with scanning electron microscopy studies. The small size of the nanocrystallites enables the fabrication of transparent glass-ceramics which is verified by UV-vis spectroscopic study. The photoluminescence and lifetime measurements indicate towards progressive changes in the Dy3+ ion surroundings and propose enhanced energy transfers taking place post-heat treatments. Finally, CIE chromaticity coordinates are found to lie in the white region proposing the suitability of the present studied materials for color display devices. ©2014 Elsevier B.V.
