Surface luminescence of oxides is excited by oxygen atoms in acts of impact recombination. The elementary excitation mechanism is due to adiabatic shift of the chemisorption complex to a nonequilibrium electronic state. At low flux densities of free atoms the charged form of adsorbed oxygen atoms is responsible for luminescence excitation.
