The generation of cationic vacancies in the electrolysis of doped alkali halide crystals

The introduction of metallic cadmium impurity into the melt reduces the electrical conductivity of KCl and KBr in the structure-sensitive range by 2–3 orders of magnitude. The electrolytic introduction of gold and nickel ions restores the impurity conductivity as a result of interaction of gold and nickel ions with the cadmium. The migration energies of cationic vacancies in KCl and KBr were found to be 0.67 eV and 0.62 eV, respectively.
