YAG:Eu nanopowders were synthesized by the nitrate-citrate sol-gel method. The morphologic modifications of the nanocrystallites produced by the thermal treatments at various temperatures are monitored by two parameters obtained from optical fluorescence spectroscopy: intensity ratio of the transition 5D0-7F2 and 5D0-7F1 and the maximum splitting of the 7F1 level. An abrupt change of both parameters is observed at the amorphous-crystalline phase transition, followed by their gradual decrease with the annealing temperature. This fact was explained by an increase of the symmetry of the Eu3+ ion neighborhood.
