Hot luminescence (HL) in rapidly relaxing impurity centres has been experimentally and theoretically studied in about ten publications (1–7). In (8) the conception of HL has been applied to exciton states of crystals. In the present paper we shall give a short survey of the basic, already published results; here we also present some new experimental data and dwell upon some general questions.
