For the first time, full size lead tungstate crystals of different suppliers, quality and dopant concentration have been irradiated with gamma-rays at low temperatures down to -25degC at IHEP Protvino. In contrast to the behavior at room temperature, increased damage and extremely slow recovery processes have been observed. These first results are discussed(More)
