Abstract:

The major research efforts described in this report involve the study of magnetic interactions in complex alkali-transition metal fluorides and the study of rare earth-defect interactions in cadmium fluoride, the latter having led to the development of an efficient family of infrared to visible converting phosphors, easily prepared in single crystal form, and possibly adaptable to a number of night-vision and display devices. A number of exploratory experiments have been done, some with a view to finding materials which might show metal-insulator transitions.
