The dysprosium and boron effect on the emission properties of europium-doped SrAl2O4 samples has recently attracted considerable attention due to their high brightness and long afterglow. Here, the influence of both cations, Dy3+ and B3+, on the spectroscopic properties of the europium free samples SrAl2O4:Dy3+ and SrAl2O4:Dy3+, B3+ has been investigated in order to get more insights concerning the mechanism by which they enhance the afterglow. Unique features have been observed in their excitation and emission spectra that show on one hand the lattice defects induced by the replacement of Sr2+ by Dy3+ and proves the existence of different crystallography sites for the Dy3+ ions and on the other hand, the local distortion of the energy levels of Dy3+ ions in the presence of B3+.
