Results of observations of low energy nuclear and electron recoil events in liquid xenon scintillator detectors are given. The relative scintillation efficiency for nuclear recoils is 0 .22± 0.01 in the recoil energy range 40–70 keV. Under the assumption of a single dominant decay component to the scintillation pulse shape the log-normal mean parameter T0 of the maximum likelihood estimator of the decay time constant for 6 keV < Eee < 30 keV nuclear recoil events is equal to 21 .0 ± 0.5 ns.
