Abstract : Investigations in the properties of charge transport and charge interaction in the alkali halide crystals are presented. Studies were made of photoconductivity, space charge formation, photodiffusion, ionic charge diffusion, and electron interaction with the lattice ions of these materials. The alkali halide crystals may be considered as large band gap semiconductors.
