We have synthesized and characterized a new BaCa2Al8O15:Eu2+,Dy3+ phosphor prepared by the combustion method. X-ray diffraction, thermoluminescence, scanning electron microscope, time decay and optical spectral analysis photoluminescence excitation, emission spectra were used to characterize the phosphors. Broadband ultraviolet excited luminescence of the BaCa2Al8O15:Eu2+,Dy3+ was observed in the blue region ((max)=435 nm) due to transitions from the 4f(6)5d(1) to the 4f(7) configuration of the Eu2+ ion. Scanning electron microscopy has been used for exploring the morphological properties of the prepared phosphors. The BaCa2Al8O15:Eu2+ phosphor has a blue afterglow when Dy3+ ions were co-doped. The thermoluminescence spectra show that the Dy3+ ion induces a proper trap in the phosphor with a depth of 0.67 eV and results in a long afterglow phosphorescence.
