Abstract : Several subjects which have been or are being investigated at the laboratory are surveyed. First, alkali halide thermoluminescence above room temperature: a model is proposed, using a 2nd order kinetics, that accounts well for a number of experimental results rather poorly explained by previous theories. Experiments are then mentioned on intrinsic electroluminescence of ZnS specimens, undergoing linear voltage transients. The results are compared with those predictable on the basis of a mathematical development of Zalm's theory. Electron microscopy studies of tracks of fission products in mica are then quoted, to end with a mention of experiments on surface electrical conductivity in metals. (Author)
