Eu2+-doped Sr2MgSi2O7 and Eu2+ and Dy3+ codoped Sr2MgSi2O7 phosphors were synthesized by conventional solid-state reaction. Eu2+ and Dy3+ concentration effects on the fluorescence and phosphorescence of Sr2MgSi2O7 phosphors were studied. All the samples show a broad emission band centered at about 470 nm, which are ascribed to 4f65d→4f7 transition of Eu2+ ions. Concentration quenching is found to be the dominant factor decreasing emission intensity and afterglow duration time when Eu2+ doping level exceeds the critical concentration. Redshift of the emission bands is also observed as the Eu2+ concentration increasing. In order to explain the redshift of the emission bands, the centroid position of 5d level of Eu2+, crystal-field splitting energy and Stokes shift are estimated from excitation and emission spectra. Based on the calculation, the redshift of the emission bands mainly results from the variations of crystal-field splitting energy and Stokes shift, but is less influenced by the nephelauxetic effect. The Dy3+ ions suppress the fluorescence but enhance the phosphorescence lifetime. When the Dy3+ concentration is over 10mol%, the phosphorescence lifetime is shortened, because of concentration quenching of the Eu2+\Dy3+ ions by the mechanism of tunneling recombination.
