The change in volume due to F centres in alkali halides is calculated using the ion-size correction method of Bartram, Stoneham and Gash (1968). In all cases the volume change Delta V is positive (expansion of the crystal) and satisfactory agreement with experiment is found in the two cases where measurements are available. The fractional volume change ( Delta V/a 3 ) decreases systematically with increasing anion or cation size.
