Abstract

The procedure for calculating the energies of radiative tunneling transition between spatially separated electron and hole centres in ionic crystals based on semiempirical INDO calculation of a pair of close defects and on a further account of electronic polarization of a crystal due to defects has been presented. Pairs of an electron, F, and hole (H, Vk, V2) centres in KCl and LiF crystals are studied. The influence of close defect interaction and of polarization upon emitted photon energy has also been considered. It is shown that due to polarization this energy varies with a distance between defects in a more complicated way than e2 ε{lunate}R shown in semiconductors.
