The study of persistent luminescence is interesting for applications related to biological imaging, self-lit roads and security signs. Composite Pr-doped samples were prepared in one pot by solid chemical reaction at 1200 C for 4 h. The X-ray diffraction patterns of the samples showed mixed phases which correspond to ZnGa2O4 and ZnTa2O6 phases. Interestingly, the secondary electron microscopy images showed that the surface morphology is composed of particles with different shapes: irregular, rhombus and rod shapes. The X-ray maps obtained using field emission scanning electron microscopy, confirmed that the irregular particles correspond to ZnTa2O6, and the rods correspond to ZnGa2O4. Red emission was observed from 1D23H4, 3P03H6, 3P03F2 and 1D23H5 transitions of Pr3+. The lifetime of the persistent luminescence was measured, and the corresponding trapping centres were investigated using thermoluminescence spectroscopy.
