Photo and electroluminescent properties of ZnO phosphors prepared by burning zinc in an atmosphere of pure oxygen have been reported. The peak positions obtained by resolving the experimental curves into Gaussian profiles are explained by assuming that the rare earths form the donor levels while the acceptor levels cause the emission of undoped phosphors. Voltage dependence of electroluminescent brightness shows that the mechanism of excitation consists of acceleration-collision. Brightness waves at different concentrations of rare earths and frequency of excitation are also studied and discussed.
