Luminescence properties of Y2-xGdxO3:Eu3+(x = 0 to 2.0) thin films are investigated by siteselective laser excitation spectroscopy at different temperature. The films were grown by pulsed laser deposition method on SiO2(100) substrates. Cubic phase Y2O3, cubic and monoclinic phase Y2?xGdxO3:Eu$^{3+}$(x = 0.3 to 2.0) are identified in the excitation spectrum of the $^{7}$F0 → $^{5}$D0 transition of Eu$^{3+}$. The emission spectra of the $^{5}$D0 → $^{7}$FJ (J = 1, 2) transition from individual Eu$^{3+}$ centers were obtained by tuning the laser to resonance with each excitation line. The blue shift of cubic phase C2 and monoclinic phase CS(B) and CS(C) excitation peak was associated with increasing temperature. But the peak shift of monoclinic phase CS(A) has not been observed.
