A systematic spectroscopic study of oriented single ZnWO4 crystals was performed using UV and synchrotron excitation. Emission and phosphorescence spectra in the energy region 1-4 eV as well as reflection spectra and excitation spectra of various emissions and phosphorescence in the energy region 3.5-32eV were studied at 4.2-300K using synchrotron radiation. The results are compared to those available for CdWO4. The peculiarities of the band structure and those of excitonic and electron-hole processes in the systems investigated are discussed.
