The scintillation time structure and the temperature dependence of the light yield from NaBi(WO4)2 crystals bombarded by 500 MeV electrons have been measured experimentally. These crystals showed a tendency to exhibit scintillator properties when the temperature of the samples was decreased. The light yield increased by more than an order of magnitude with the temperature falling from the room level to that of liquid nitrogen. The scintillation time structure was of a complex pattern, and a slow luminescent component (τ = 30 ns) was present in the spectrum.
