Synergistic use of Raman and photoluminescence signals for optical thermometry with large temperature sensitivity


In this work we demonstrate that large temperature sensitivity over a wider temperature range is possible by adopting the dual use of Raman and photoluminescence (PL) signals emitted by rare-earth doped crystalline phosphors when excited by a suitable laser light. We define Raman-PL-intensity ratio (RPIR) as an alternative thermometric parameter to define temperature sensitivity and exploited the contrasting effect of temperature on the intensities of the PL and Raman lines of a Eu3+-doped BaTiO3 ferroelectric phosphor and achieved large temperature tuning of color (red <-> blue/green) and large relative temperature sensitivities in a wide temperature range: +6.4 %K-1 at 65 K, +2.4 %K-1 at 303 K. Our strategy offers greater flexibility for the design of phosphor systems for optical thermometry with high sensitivity.
