Ce:LYSO (Lu1.90Y0.1SiO5:Ce) single crystals were prepared by the Czochralski technique. We report some effects of the X-ray irradiation on the shape of the emission spectra. For instance a large decrease of the longest wavelength emission (at about 500 nm) is observed with an increase of the light yield after one hour under X-ray irradiation. Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) evidences no change in the two cerium site occupancy along with the irradiation time. A mechanism taking into account the evolution of the oxygen vacancies as neighbors of Ce3+ ions is proposed.
