On the possibility of a forecast for off-centre configuration of Ag+ and Cu+ in alkali halide crystals

  • L. Bosi

Note Brevi

Summary

The simple cut criterion based on the accurate determination of the radii of the ions in alkali halides and previously introduced by the authors for forecasting off-centre configuration of Li+ and F has been extended to heavy ions (Ag+ and Cu+). It has been found that this criterion is valid for the Ag+ ion, whereas for Cu+ gives a less precise forecast because of the lack in knowledge of the effective partial charge on Cu+ ion. It has been evidenced that the critical value of the ratior + * /r + between impurity and host ion radius which allows off-centre configuration is dependent on the impurity ion mass.
