This report represents a continuation of earlier investigations on the thermal conductivity of pure, neutron damaged, and additively colored MgO.1,2 Basically the current study is designed to relate quite generally the temperature dependence of the thermal conductivity to the type and density of the defects produced by a particular type of damage in MgO. In this work we also correlate the occurrence of F and F+ centers, as well as other defect centers, with the optical3 and ESR4 work that has previously been reported.
