The luminescence spectra and luminescence decay kinetics in ZnWO 4 (nominal pure and doped with Fe and Mo) under pulsed electron beam and pulsed nitrogen laser excitation have been investigated. It is suggested that the two-stage intrinsic luminescence decay observed under ionizing radiation excitation in ZnWO4 and CdWO4 was due to two different self-trapped exciton (STE) configurations in these crystals. The role of Fe and Mo impurities for scintillation efficiency in ZnWO4 and CdWO4 has been discussed.
