The influence of Eu doping on the energy transfer processes in BaFBr and Ba0.82Sr0.18FBr is investigated. A study of the phosphor efficiency under excitation into the F(Br-) and FA(Br-, Sr2+) bands as well as excitation of the 4f7 → 4f65d (4.5eV) Eu2+ transition and X-ray excitation are presented. The conditions and limits for the concentration quenching Eu2+ in BaFBr and Ba0.82Sr0.18FBr were established. The mechanism of the enhancement of photostimulation luminescence (PSL) intensity with the addition of Sr was established. It was shown that Sr2+ stabilizes hole centers at room temperature in a similar way as Eu2+.
