  Sb additives in commercial varistors, supposed to play the role of the grain boundary pinning by the formation of the secondary phase particles, lead to the presence of head-to-head (C+|C+) polarity inversion boundaries within individual ZnO grains. Therefore, intergranular boundaries in ZnO varistor ceramics are preferentially of C- (O-face) which are suggested to be responsible for the high performance in the varistor function [1-3]. ZnO bicrystals of C-| C- interfaces were prepared by diffusion bonding at high temperature [4] together with platinum plates which serve as ohmic electrodes [2,3]. With the dc resistance subtracted admittance spectroscopy has been successfully applied to the Schottky barrier of a Pr-doped ZnO bicrystalline interface for the deep level identification [Appl. Phys. Lett. 96 202104 (2010)]. Yet the admittance behavior deviates from that of the ideal RC equivalent circuits which may originate from the broadening of the deep levels or the Fermi level pinning by the high trap concentration. Here we demonstrate the application of impedance analysis using the electrical models for the deep trap levels of ZnO bicrystals doped with various transition metals of Co, Mn, Ni, Cu and the activators of Bi or Pr.
