Abstract : The luminescence of normal and deformed single crystals of AgCl of different thickness was measured at -180C. A decrease in luminescence intensity was found with the deformed samples. In the emission band of these samples, a fine structure was observed for which the series rule could be used. The observed luminescence was explained by means of the exciton mechanism proposed by Matyas, i.e., annihilation of a localized exciton, either on a cation vacancy or on the same vacancy on a dislocation jog. The luminescence yield was measured by a photographic method. (Author)
