Formation of F-centers in Kcl-Rbcl solid solutions with Sr2+ and OH impurities

  • K. S. Cholokov

The kinetics of F-center formation are studied in crystals of KCl-RbCl. solid solutions, both in the “pure” state and with Sr2+ and OH impurities. The crystals were irradiated by electrons at 1.2 MeV at room temperature. The initial stage of coloration in crystals that have been purified of divalent cation impurities is the same as that of “pure” crystals; only when Sr2+ is introduced is this stage sharply accelerated. The efficiency of F-center formation in the second stage of coloration is significantly smaller in purified crystals than in “pure” crystals.
