Rare earth-free white emitting (Sr,Sn)(Zn,Mn)P2O7 phosphors were synthesized in a single phase form by a conventional solidstate reaction method and photoluminescent properties were characterized. These phosphors showed three broad band in emission spectra at 340, 440, and 690 nm, and the ratio of emission intensity between blue-green light and red light changes with Mn2+ content increasing because of energy transfer from Sn2+ to Mn2+. The emission color of the phosphors varied from blue-white to orange-white with the increase in the Mn2+ content and the emission color of the (Sr0.90Sn0.10)(Zn0.97Mn0.03)P2O7 phosphor was very close to white light.
