Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to review briefly the optical properties of vacancy aggregate centers and how these are related to the electronic structure of the defects. While the F center is still the best studied and understood defect, considerable progress has been made through the years in understanding the more complex centers. The atomistic structure of the F 2 (M) and F 3 (R) center and their positively or negatively charged species \(\left( {F_2^ + ,\,F_3^ + \,and\,F_2^ - (M\prime ),\,F_3^ - (R\prime )} \right)\) is well established today. They are known to be complexes of two or three F centers at neighboring anion sites (for models see Pick, 1965). Aggregate centers are produced under various conditions not discussed here and give rise to optical absorption and emission spectra on the long wavelength side of or even beyond the F band. In other cases of more complex centers like the N centers we are still far from knowing even only the atomistic structure, although many efforts were undertaken to find it out.
