Abstract. The spectra of a photoluminescence (PL) in plastically deformed (PD) ZnS:Mn single crystals are investigated. It is shown that the PD processes cause change of a quantitative ratio between separate types of glow manganese centres (MC) as a result of their local symmetry rearrangement. After decomposing of PL integral spectra by individual PL bands using the cumulative distribution Gauss function, the nature of a ratio change between PL MC of different types is established. The individual with the peaking in the range 618-620 nm is discovered.

Keywords: spectra of photoluminescence, plastical deformation, manganese centres, individual
band, decomposition of integral spectra.
