Abstract: The Fluorescence spectra have been recorded of Sm3+ doped ZnO nanomaterial using with intense absorption bands (400 nm) at room temperature in visible region. Three strong fluorescence bands at ~594.8, ~617.6, ~651.4 nm and one weak band at ~700.0 nm have been observed and assigned to 4G5/2 6H5/2, 4G5/2 6H7/2, 4G5/2 6H9/2 and 4G5/2 6H11/2 transitions respectively. Radiative properties viz. spontaneous emission probability (A), fluorescence branching ratio (β), radiative life time (t) and stimulated emission cross- section (σp) have been computed. The size range of the generated Sm3+ doped ZnO nanomaterial was approximately 50-20nm. The trend of stimulated emission cross-section (sp) has been shown like this 4G5/26H7/2> 4G5/26H11/2 >4G5/26H9/2 > 4G5/26H5/2.

Key words: ZnO nanomaterial, fluorescence spectra and radiative properties.
