Abstract [en]

The novel vanadium oxides Rb2CaV2O7 and Cs2CaV2O7 have been prepared by solid-state reaction and their crystal structures determined and refined using X-ray, neutron powder and electron diffraction data. Rb2CaV2O7 and Cs2CaV2O7 are isostructural, crystallizing in space group P21/n with unit cell parameters: a = 13.8780(1), b = 5.96394(5), c = 10.3376(1) Å, ? = 104.960(1)º and a = 14.0713(2), b = 6.0934(1), c = 10.5944(1) Å, ? = 104.608(1)º, respectively. Their crystal structures can be described as a framework of CaO6 octahedra and V2O7 pyrogroups with alkaline metals found in the tunnels formed. Photoluminescence (PL) and PL excitation spectra of the concerned pyrovanadates have been studied in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) to visible light (VIS) range as well as their pulse cathode luminescence (PCL) spectra and the kinetic parameters of PCL. In the PL and the PCL spectra of both pyrovanadates recorded at T = 300 K a broad band with maxima at 2.38, 2.2 eV and a shoulder (band) at 2.08 eV have been observed. At T = 10 K the band at 2.08 eV becomes the main band in the spectra. Two types of luminescence centers for each pyrovanadates, with very similar excitation bands at 3.75, 4.84, 6.2, 7.3 and 9.1 eV, have been found. The nature of the luminescence centers connected with the band 2.08 eV (center I) and the bands 2.2 and 2.38 eV (center II) is discussed
