Abstract: Optical experiments, involving photoluminescence (PL), the PL excitation and quenching spectra, as well as transmission and its quenching, were used to analyse the photochromic behaviour of some vacancy-related complexes in diamond. The 2.156 eV, 1.945 eV and 1.68 eV optical centres in CVD diamond are attributed to the neutral nitrogen-vacancy, negative nitrogen-vacancy and neutral silicon-vacancy ([Si-V](0)) centres, respectively. Oscillatory behaviour in the excitation spectrum of the 1.68 eV luminescence is observed and from the threshold of the oscillations a position of Ec - 2.05 eV is suggested for the ground state of the [Si-V](0) centre.
