  • 1 December 1968
Abstract In a discussion of conduction in glasses containing transition metal ions, the following points are stressed: 1. (a) The process is similar to “impurity conduction” in doped and compensatedExpand

Conduction in non-crystalline systems V. Conductivity, optical absorption and photoconductivity in amorphous semiconductors
Abstract The experimental evidence concerning the density of states in amorphous semiconductors and the ranges of energy in which states are localized is reviewed; this includes d.c. and a.c.Expand

Polarons in crystalline and non-crystalline materials
The current state of polaron theory as applicable to transition metal oxides is reviewed, including problems such as impurity conduction where disorder plays a role. An estimate is given of theExpand

The Basis of the Electron Theory of Metals, with Special Reference to the Transition Metals
It is shown that the collective electron and London-Heitler models are not to be regarded as different approximations to the same exact wave function for solids in which, according to the formerExpand
