Abstract : Centers of coloration formed on radiating ruby with gamma rays are shown to have no apparent contribution to its luminescence; nonradiating transitions predominate, the centers possibly extinguishing luminescence, reducing its yield. The appearance of such centers is regarded as being connected with the presence of impurities. The centers are found in the form of occlusions, and they create local defects in the crystals. Radiation of these defects causes localization of the defects or holes.
