Luminescent characteristics of BaGd4Si3O13:Tb phosphor powder including fluorine, which is synthesized at about 1000, have been investigated. This phosphor shows the green emission due to Tb3+ under VUV excitation. By incorporation of F ion based on low-temperature synthesis, the photoluminescence excitation band lying in the wavelength region from 130 to 170 nm increases drastically in comparison to BaGd4Si3O13:Tb phosphor synthesized at 1550. This phosphor is a candidate for a green PDP phosphor for both 147 nm resonance line and 172 nm excimer band of Xe plasma.
