Novel Ln3+-doped (Ln3+ = Tb3+ and Eu3+) and Eu3+, Bi3+ co-doped Ca3Y3Ge2BO13 phosphors were synthesized by a conventional solid-state reaction method. Tb3+- and Eu3+-doped phosphors showed strong narrow green and red emission due to 4f intra-shell transitions of the Tb3+ or Eu3+ ions under the excitation at 254 nm. Bi3+ co-doped Ca3Y3Ge2BO13:Eu3+ phosphor has a new broad strong excitation band appeared at around 302 nm due to 1S03P1 transition of Bi3+, and presents red emission owing to 4f-4f transition of Eu3+ under excitation at 302 nm.
