A series of ZnMgO thin-film nanophosphors with varied Zn:Mg ratio has been prepared by chemical bath deposition. The structure, photoluminescence, time-resolved decay and chromaticity of the films are presented. ZnMgO films absorb light efficiently in the near UV (330–400 nm) and the emission covers a large part of the visible spectrum. Luminescence enhancement is maximum for 25% Mg. All ZnMgO films show luminescence lifetimes in the microsecond range while low Mg content (0–10%) films also exhibit fast decay (10–10 s). Measured colorimetric coordinates of (0.28, 0.32) when excited by 350 nm light make them suitable for generation of white light in conjunction with near UV LEDs.
