We report the temperature dependence of the vacuum ultraviolet emission from the xenon homonuclear molecule in the temperature range 138-23°K. At the highest and lowest temperatures the spectrum consists of a single band peaked at 1720 and 1750Å respectively. At intermediate temperatures, 56-83° K, a band peaking at about 1640Å dominates the spectrum. This phenomenon is ascribed to temperature induced structural modifications in solid xenon.
