The Sr2La8(SiO4)6O2:Ce3+ powder phosphor with apatite structure has been successfully synthesized via a facile route of sol-combustion technique. X-ray diffraction (XRD), field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy were used to characterize the as-prepared samples. Sr2La8(SiO4)6O2:Ce3+ phosphor was composed of particles with average sizes range about 300 nm. The phosphor exhibited an absorption ranging from 220 to 390 nm in ultraviolet range and a broad blue-violet emission band peaked at 403 nm with a CIE coordinates of (0.167, 0.028). The concentration quenching mechanism was also determined to be dipole-dipole interaction.
