Paper Abstract

When subjected to modest levels of illumination (1W/cm2) of green light, the fast-Lon conductor Ag13I9W208 exhibits an order of magnitude decrease in conductivity. This effect is fast and repetitive, but experiments reveal problems with the material in the form of serious aging (shelf-life) effects that are accelerated in the presence of strong illumination.
