Abstract : During the past few years we have investigated the electronic energy band structure and related optical properties of over 50 crystalline solids, including the diamond-type crystals; cubic and hexagonal SiC; several III-V, II-VI, and I-VII compounds having the sphalerite or wurtzite structure; a number of IV-VI, II-VI, and I-VII compounds having the rock-salt structure; some anti-fluorite-type II-IV compounds; and a few solid rare gases; among others. During this period, a large number of papers were published dealing with various aspects of the work. As these papers have appeared in widely scattered scientific journals, conference proceedings, and books, we thought it would serve a useful purpose to bring all of them together under one cover, and have this collection serve as the main body of this Final Report. Also included in this Final Report are two earlier papers written in 1960 and 1964, which form the basis of our orthogonalized plane wave (OPW) energy band calculations. (Author)
