Ba (NO3)2, Mg (NO3)2, SiO2 * H2O, NH2CONH2, Eu (NO3)3 and H3BO3 are used as the raw materials for the synthetization of Ba2MgSi2O7 (RE: Eu) nano sized powder sample using combustion synthesis technique (CST). X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), and thermoluminescence (TL) spectra are employed to examine the effect of varying doping concentration of Eu ions on crystalline structure, surface morphology, and thermal characteristics. The monoclinic Ba2MgSi2O7 compound has a dominant phase characteristic, according to powder XRD patterns, and there are additionally dopants exist that have no discernible impact on the host crystal structure. This melilite group structure yields a layered compound. Standard JCPDS PDF file #23-0842 closely matched the synthesized powder sample's usual XRD patterns. The average particle size (D) of the flake- like Ba2-xEuxMgSi2O7 (x=0.05) phosphor is calculated to be nearly ~70 nm. Systematically examined and described are the thermal characteristics as expressed by TL glow curves. The observations demonstrate that a variety of UV exposure to radiation times, such as 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes, and 25 minutes, had almost no impact on the peak positions in the present spectra. Using TL glow curves and Chen's glow curve approach, the various trapping parameters, including trap depth or activation energy (E), frequency factor (s- 1), and shape factor (µg), are evaluated.
