abstract Synthetic umbite microporous zirconium silicates doped with different concentrations of Eu3+ are used as phosphorus and as precursor for preparing novel luminescence dense materials, analogues of the mineral wadeite. Both zirconium silicates display a high and stable room temperature emission in the visible spectral region. The number of Stark components detected in Eu3+-doped umbite and in Eu3+-doped wadeite indicates the presence of one and two optically active Eu3+ environments, respectively. From the luminescence features, we inferred that in doped umbite Eu3+ replace K+ located in large eight-membered rings, whereas in Eu3+-doped wadeite one of the sites corresponds to an isomorphous Eu3+/K+ substitution and the other to a replacement of the Zr4+ ions.
