Highly crystalline Gd 3+ -doped cadmium oxide micro-structure was synthesized by calcining the obtained precursor of a sol-gel reaction. The reaction was carried out with cadmium nitrate (Cd(NO 3 ) 2 ·4H 2 O), gadolinium oxide, and ethylene glycol (C 2 H 6 O 2 ) reactants without any additives at 80°C for 2 h. The resulting gel was calcined at 900°C with increasing temperature rate of 15°C/min for 12 h in a furnace. As a result of heating, the organic section of the gel was removed, and the Gddoi:10.1186/2228-5326-3-41 fatcat:rocyjr34n5dg5lgmr6qbqv7qyu
