The excitation and emission spectra of CsCdCl3 crystal grown by the Bridgman growth technique, are

observed. Its dominant excitation spectra correspond to the transitions between the electronic energy

levels of the face-shared [CdCl6]4 octahedron complexes with C3v symmetry. With the help of the

molecular orbital diagram of the [CdCl6]4 molecule complex, an approximate electronic energy level

diagram of this crystal is constructed using one-electron approximation.
