Temperature behaviors of X-ray luminescence, photoluminescence, and thermoluminescence were studied in cadmium bromide crystals doped with impurities of argentum from room temperature to liquid nitrogen temperature. It was found that the cadmium bromide crystals doped with impurities of argentum are sensitive to action of X-rays and ultraviolet light owing to the flow of photochemical reactions in these crystals.
