Sm3+ doped multicomponent antimony phosphate (MSP) luminescent glasses were prepared and tunable white fluorescence has been investigated. Broad visible emission depending on excitation wavelength is validated to be dominated by discrepant Sb3+ emitting centers. Group of narrow emissions from Sm3+ is beneficial to adding yellow and red components in Sm3+ doped MSP glasses, which is strengthened by effective energy transfer from Sb3+ to Sm3+. Excitation wavelength selection and Sm3+ concentration adjustment are two feasible routes to optimize luminescence color in Sm3+ doped MSP glasses and the color tunability of fluorescence indicates that amorphous Sm3+ doped MSP glass phosphors possess potential for ideal white light devices.
