A review and new data are presented on the absolute photon yield emitted by “classical” (NaI(Tl+), CsI(Tl+ ), CsI(Na+), CaF2(Eu2+), Bi4 Ge3O12, and CdWO4) and “modern” (BaF2, Gd2SiO5(Ce 3+), YAlO3(Ce3+), Lu2SiO5(Ce3+), Lu3Al5 O12(Sc3+), and K2LaCl5(Ce3+)) scintillation crystals after absorption of X-rays and γ-rays of energies ranging from 5 keV to 1 MeV. Factors influencing the energy resolution with which high energy photons can be detected with scintillator-photomultiplier combinations are reviewed. Attention is especially focused on the effects of nonproportionality in the scintillation response on the energy resolution
