The infrared luminescence of neodymium-doped silver bromide crystals at 880, 1060, and 1300 nm was investigated. The emission, excitation, and absorption spectra were measured at low and room temperatures. Differences in the temperature dependence of the intensity and in the decay times for different emission bands were observed.
