This paper reports on a study of cross-luminescence in barium fluoride crystals doped by a variety of impurities (K+, Cd2+, Y3+, Yb3+, La3+). It is shown that doping of the crystal with a trivalent impurity gives rise to the formation of an additional cross-luminescence band peaking at 7.5 eV, the intensity of this band increasing with increasing impurity concentration.
