Eu2O3-doped yttrium oxide (3 mol%) [Y2O3:Eu(3 mol%)] with wire-like and near-spherical morphologies were prepared by a solvothermal treatment using water, ethanol, ethylene glycol and glycerol as reaction media followed by calcination. The powders prepared in water and ethanol possessed wire structure, where the powder treated in water showed high aspect ratio and that in ethanol showed low aspect ratio. The powders prepared in ethylene glycol and glycerol possessed well-dispersed near-spherical powders, which showed almost the same level of photoluminescence emission intensity as that of submicron particles prepared without solvothermal treatment.
