We have studied photoluminescence spectra of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers upon their pumping by short-wavelength visible and near-UV radiation. We have shown that NV0 centers, as distinct from NV centers have an absorption line in the UV range. Inversion of the zero-phonon line of NV centers has been shown and interpreted.
