Monoclinic phase Bi0.95Eu0.05PO4 was synthesized by polymer–mediated solid-state reaction employing polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). The powder X-ray diffraction revealed the phase purity and isostructural nature of both Eu3+-doped and undoped BiPO4. The role of PVA molecules in assisting the particle growth during the phase formation and enhancing the degree of crystallinity significantly by its combustion. The synthesized materials were characterized using different spectroscopic techniques such as FT-IR, Raman and Photoluminescence (PL). The methodology discussed here is fundamentally important, which may provide an excellent platform for the phase-controlled synthesis and further optimized materials performance..
