Studies of paramagnetic relaxation in crystals were made. The results include 1 More accurate relaxation data characteristic of the vacancy-type defects in crystal line quartz. 2 Relaxation data characteristic of similar defect centers in Ge02 Glass. 3 Interpretations of these data in terms of a large local strain at frequencies characteristic of mechanical resonance modes localized around the defect. 4 Discovery of a temperature dependence determined by the high frequency local mode associated with atomic hydrogen trapped in calcium fluoride. 5 Discussion of relaxation theory by means of relaxation diagrams, analogous to those introduced in quantum electrodynamics by R. P. Feynman. Author
