    A mechanism of room-temperature irradiation-induced strengthening of alkali-halide crystals (AHCs) is suggested. It is shown that the deformation-stimulated luminescence is a result of the destruction of hole color centers, which strengthen AHCs, by dislocations.

    We evaluate the potential energy of a He atom near an ionic surface by summing a two-body potential as derived from molecular physics. Corrugation parameters and binding energy are derived for a set of four alkali halide surfaces and compared to recent atom scattering data. Finally we comment on...
