In this study, ZrP2O7 was synthesized by the solid state reaction of ZrO2 and NH4H2PO4 at 900 degrees C. Then, in set 1; 10, 5, 1, 0.5, 0.1, 0.05, 0.03% previously prepared Sr2P2O7 were doped into ZrP2O7, and Sr2P2O7 slightly affect the unit cell parameter of cubic ZrP2O7 (a = 8.248(6)-8.233(8) angstrom). The reverse of this process was also applied to Sr2P2O7 system (set 2). ZrP2O7 changes the unit cell parameters of orthorhombic Sr2P2O7 in between a = 8.909(5)-8.877(5) angstrom, b = 13.163(3)-13.12(1) angstrom, and c = 5.403(2)-5.386(4) angstrom. Analysis of the vibrations of the P2O74- ion and approximate band assignments for IR and Raman spectra are also reported in this work. Some coincidences in infrared and Raman spectra both sets were found and strong P-O-P bands were observed. Surface morphology, EDX analysis, and thermoluminescence properties of both sets were given the first time in this paper.
