This paper reports the synthesis and luminescence properties of rare earth doped BiPO4:Ce,Tb nanorods which were prepared via a solvothermal method. The nanorods are of hexagonal structure and they have intense luminescence. In Ce3+/Tb3+ co-doped nanorods, there is energy transfer from Ce3+ to Tb3+ which enhances the luminescence of Tb3+. These materials may find applications in solid state lighting and radiation detection.
