Centres luminogènes dans les fluorures activés à l'uranium

W.A. Runciman

Atomic Energy Research Establishment, Harwell

The idea of localised charge compensation is introduced, and used to obtain probable atomic configurations in uranium-activated fluorides, particular attèntion being given to uranium-activated sodium fluoride. High- dispersion fluorescence and absorption spectra of various sodium fluoride phosphors are shown and discussed. There are large effects due to other impurities present and also to cooling down from 77 °K to 4,2 °K.

3350 - Fluorescence and phosphorescence; radiationless transitions, quenching (intersystem crossing, internal conversion).
