AbstractPotassium bromide crystals with varying amounts of hydroxide impurity were irradiated with ultra-violet light of wavelength 225 mμ. No colouration was observed in pure crystals. The density of colouration produced in impure crystals was approximately proportional to the hydroxide concentration. A bolometer was used to measure absolute light intensities.
