Zn 2SiO 4:Mn 2+ particles are used as green phosphors in plasma display panels and cathode ray tubes. In this study, we report the synthesis of zinc silicate phosphors by flame spray pyrolysis using different Zn-sources and under different process conditions. The XRD and luminescence measurement showed the phosphors prepared from Zn-nitrate source to have better crystallinity and emission characteristics. The luminescence properties of the phosphor particles were found to improve both at higher methane flow rates during pyrolysis and at higher annealing temperatures.
