Abstract Yellow-emitting phosphor mat consisting of Ca{sub 0.68}Si{sub 9}Al{sub 3}(ON){sub 16}:Eu{sup 2+} microbelts was prepared by electrospinning and subsequent nitridation. The as-prepared fiber precursor is smooth and uniform with diameter of 800 to 900 nm. After removing organic templates and nitridation, the morphology of the fiber is well retained and thus a smooth microbelts phosphor mat was obtained. X-ray diffraction and the photoluminescence (PL) spectra reveals that a relatively pure Ca{sub 0.68}Si{sub 9}Al{sub 3}(ON){sub 16} phase and the highest spectral intensity could be obtained at a relatively low temperature of 1500 °C and Eu{sup 2+} doping molar concentration of 0.1. The excitation spectra exhibits a broad band, ranging from 300 to 550 nm, which could be excited by blue LED chip at room temperature. The emission spectra of all exhibits a single broad band in the 400 to 700 nm region, with the maximum intensity always being at 580 nm. The Ca{sub 0.68}Si{sub 9}Al{sub 3}(ON){sub 16}:Eu{sup 2+} microbelts phosphor mat has the bending strength about 4.5 MPa with a photoluminescence quantum yield as high as 65%. By employing it as yellow phosphor, a high-performance warm white LED could be fabricated with low correlated color temperature (2985 K), high-color-rendering index (Ra=86) and luminous efficacy of 129.5 lm W{sup −1}. Different color temperatures also could be tuned by employing microbelts phosphor mats with different thicknesses. - Graphical abstract: Yellow-emitting phosphor mat consisting of Ca{sub 0.68}Si{sub 9}Al{sub 3}(ON){sub 16}:Eu{sup 2+} microbelts fibers were prepared by electrospinning the fiber precursor and subsequent nitridation. Because the good mechanical strength it could be utilized to realize LEDs remote packaging. By employing it as yellow phosphor, a high-performance warm white LED could be fabricated.
