Mixed NaCl-KCl crystals are grown from water solution. Thermal diffusion, decomposition and microstructures studies by employing the etching technique are reported. It is shown that microstructures consisting of alternate lamellae of NaCl and KCl arranged in 〈100〉 and 〈110〉 directions in the two-phase mixed NaCl-KCl crystals observed at room temperature get converted to the one consisting of random mixture of both the phases on finer scale on heating at 300°C for 30 hr. The dissociated matrix on heating at 600°C for 15 hr regains almost all the characteristics of a single crystal transforming the material into single-phase mixed (NaK) Cl crystals. The temperature dependence of the thermal diffusion is discussed.

Doping with alkaline earth impurities converts the alkali halides into very efficient phosphors. LiF doped with Mg is extensively used in radiation dosimetry. However, the phenomenon of thermoluminescence in these materials is far from clear. LiF-

Dislocation densities have been investigated in potassium chloride crystals, electrolytically coloured in the temperature range of 550–710°C. The results show an increase in the dislocation density with coloration temperature upto 650°C and decrease thereafter. This is attributed to the movement of dislocations and interactions between them during electrolytic coloration of the crystals.
