Abstract:

Electrical relaxation measurements at high pressures have been carried out on lead fluoride doped with lanthanum and cerium. A single, strong relaxation peak is observed and the relaxation time decreases with pressure. This is contrary to the behavior exhibited by all known relaxations and can be explained by attributing the relaxation to a substitutional trivalent rare earth compensated either by an interstitial fluorine ion with a soft attempt mode or by an electron.
