Strontium molybdate, SrMoO4

Strontium molybdate (SrMoO4) is an inorganic compound with a tetragonal crystal structure. It is a white crystalline solid that possesses excellent thermal stability. The compound is known for its optical properties, making it valuable in the field of optoelectronics and luminescent materials. Its luminous characteristics make it particularly attractive for use in phosphor applications for lighting and displays. Additionally, SrMoO4 has been studied as a potential scintillator material due to its ability to produce light when exposed to ionizing radiation. The synthesis of strontium molybdate typically involves solid-state reactions or hydrothermal methods.
