Radioluminescence properties of Nd doped KCaF 3 single crystals were studied. X-ray excited luminescence spectra were measured in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) region by using a custom-made device filled with nitrogen atmosphere. As a result, VUV luminescence was observed at 190 nm. Radioluminescence intensity due to the core-valence luminescence (CVL) of KCaF 3 decreased with increasing of Nd 3+ concentration.
