Solid state reaction method was used for obtaining LNO doped with rare earth Pr3+ in 1% at mol. To obtain this material, precursor oxides were weighed according to the desired stoichiometry and La3+ ions was substituted for Pr3+. Thereafter, this material was ground and then calcined at a temperature of 1100ºC, being that a characterization study was carried out using X-ray diffraction technique. Through the Rietveld refinement was confirmed that the LNO phase remains in the doped sample and that there was no formation of secondary phases. The sample was sintered for a period of 6 hours at a temperature of 1200ºC and then down-conversion (DC) study was performed under 470 nm excitation, where were observed well-defined bands in the red region.
