Title: Some factors affecting the temperature coefficient of zinc sulphide type phosphors
Author: Brown, Denis Hackett

Abstract: It is shown in a brief discussion that current theories do not explain the observed variation in the log of the intensity (B) with temperature for zinc sulphide type phosphors continuously excited ultra-violet radiation. The way in which the temperature coefficient of the phosphors depends on the silver and nickel concentrations is discussed. It is also shown that the temperature coefficient depends on the nature of the base matrix. This is changed by the addition of cadmium sulphide and by varying the conditions under which the phosphors are prepared. It is found that the curves of log B v’s 1/T can be normalized a simple manner. In the process of the normalization a relationship is developed between the superlinearity of the phosphors to ultra-violet excitation and their temperature coefficient. An empirical equation, B/I = 1/ [C1` exp(-P1`/ T) + C2` exp (-P2`/T +C3], is fitted to the log B v’s 1/T curve.
