Abstract : All pertinent articles published before February 1965 in the USSR dealing with photon counters based on hot-electron effects, experimental research on photoconductivity in the impurity band due to transitions between neighboring impurity centers, and experimental studies of a promising material (Cd(x)Hg(1-x)Te) for intrinsic photon counters are included. An attempt has been made to provide all of the pertinent data so as to minimize the need for referring to the original articles.
