Single crystals of PbWO4have been studied in connection with their application for high energy physics experiments. A comprehensive characterization of PbWO4by means of transmission, thermoluminescence and emission spectra measurements will be described. Annealing procedures in the air and vacuum atmospheres at high temperatures were used to study induced changes in the transmission. The gamma radiation induced changes in the absorption spectra of several PbWO4crystals of different origin, and intentionally doped will be illustrated.
