The limitations of energy resolution of scintillation detectors are discussed with a special emphasis on non-proportionality response of scintillators to gamma rays and electrons, which is of crucial importance to an intrinsic energy resolution of the crystals. Examples of the study carried out with different crystals and particularly those of tests of undoped NaI and CsI at liquid nitrogen temperature with the light readout by avalanche photodiodes are presented suggesting strongly that the non-proportionality of the crystals are not only their intrinsic property and may be improved due to selective co-doping.
