Abstract [en]

Although homogeneity at the atomic level of CeO2-ZrO2 with a Ce/Zr atomic ratio close to unity is considered to be one of the main causes for the increased total oxygen storage capacity (OSC), the characterization approaches of homogeneity remain a major challenge. We propose a simple, yet effective method, to assess both structural and compositional homogeneity of CeO2-ZrO2 by using Eu3+ luminescence measured with time and dual spectral resolution (emission and excitation). For Eu3+-CeO2-ZrO2 calcined at 750 degrees C, the X-ray diffraction, Raman and High-Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy data converge to a single pseudo-cubic phase. However, the evolution of Eu3+-delayed luminescence from cubic ceria-like to tetragonal zirconia-like emission reveals the formation of CeO2- and ZrO2-rich nanodomains and provides evidence for early phase separation. For Eu3+-CeO2-ZrO2 calcined at 1000 degrees C, the emission of Eu3+ reveals both structural and compositional inhomogeneity. Our study identifies the differences between the local structure properties of CeO2 and ZrO2 parent oxides and CeO2-ZrO2 mixed oxide, also confirming the special chemical environment of the oxygen atoms in the mixed oxide as reported earlier by Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure investigations.
