AbstractThe aim of this work is to clarify the scintillation-yield enhancement in LuYAG:Pr scintillators obtained by Li codoping via integrated study of the valence state of activators, the preferential site occupancy of Li codopants, and defect structures from experimental and theoretical insights. With Li codoping, the light yield and energy resolution of 10 x 10 x 10 mm(3) LuYAG:Pr samples are improved from 15 600 to 24 800 photons/MeV, and 5.3 to 4.3% at 662 keV, respectively. The optical absorption spectra indicate that Li codoping does not induce conversion of stable Pr3+ to Pr4+ in LuYAG:Pr single crystals. Based on the formation energies of substitutional and interstitial Li sites using density-functional-theory (DFT) calculations and the Li-7 nuclear magnetic resonance results, it is shown that the Li ions prefer to dominantly occupy the fourfold coordinated interstitial sites and fourfold coordinated Al sites. The systematic analysis of thermoluminescence glow curves, positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopies, and defect formation energies derived from DFT calculations reveals that the concentration of isolated Lu and Al vacancies as dominant acceptor defects is reduced by Li codoping, whilst the shallow Li-i interstitial defects and the deep V-o oxygen vacancies are introduced simultaneously. We propose that the lowering of hole trapping at defects resulting from Li codoping contributes to the scintillation-yield enhancement.
