In this study, luminescence materials Zn2SiO4 doped with Mn2+ were fabricated by using the solid state reaction method. The structural and luminescence properties were investigated by using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and photoluminescence (PL) measurements. XRD results show that the crystallite size of the materials is a few hundred nanometers. The results also show the influence of Mn2+ concentration on the crystallite structure of Zn2SiO4, as a result, influencing the luminescence intensity of the materials, as shown in PL results. The obtained results can be explained based on the difference in the size of ions Mn2+ and Zn2+ and the luminescence quenching phenomenon.
