Emission of europium(Ⅱ) and europium(Ⅲ) have been observed in SrMgF4:xEu, yTb phosphors which are synthesized in Ar flow. The valence state of Eu is influenced by terbium. It is noted that the intensities of the ESR peaks corresponding to Eu2+are increased when terbium ion is codoped, this can be explained by electron transfer mechanism which is Eu3++Tb3+ →Eu2++Tb4+. And its equilibrium constant is calculated.

Key words: Rare earth valence, Electron transfer, ESR spectrum
