The possibility of the existence of complex defects in pure and doped crystal phosphor discussed in work. The luminescent properties of mono- and nanocrystals of zinc tungstate, the powders of YAG with various compositions are studied. It is shown that the intrinsic defects, impurities, oxygen vacancies, the hydroxyl groups may be present in the structure of the complex defects (nanodefects). Nanodefects form during synthesis and have high efficiency of the transfer of excitation energy to the emission centres.
