Abstract

Our contribution to this course will begin with an introduction into the concepts underlying the Wannier-Mott and Frenkel exciton models, two extreme pictures of an exciton in crystalline materials. Excitons in wide gap insulators belong to the intermediate coupling case.

Our presentation will be essentially confined to the aspects of free and/or self-trapped (localized) excitons in alkali halides and rare gas solids. On that account, we will present and discuss absorption, reflectivity, and intrinsic luminescence spectra of these materials.
