Abstract

A colour change of doped YAB crystals and microcrystalline powders takes place upon illumination with different white light sources. This paper presents extensive experimental data on the new materials Ho,Nd:YAB; Ho,Cr:YAB, Nd,Cr:YAB and Ho,Nd,Cr:YAB, resulting in a chart providing the observed crystal colours and chromaticity differences of the materials under illumination with seven different types of white light sources. The microcrystalline powders could be used as coatings in order to produce a special colour changing effect. Furthermore, the colour table presented enables the observer to discriminate the investigated light sources at one glance.

Keywords: YAB; Yttriumaluminiumborate; Colour rendering; Colour change; White light sources
