Paper Abstract

Substances that undergo dramatic changes in optical properties when subjected to changes in temperature, pressure, or magnetic field are the subject of growing interest to both basic and applied scientists. Possible applications of such optical switching materials range from dense optical information storage to switchable filters to components of integrated optical circuitry. Some switching materials are found among rare-earth compounds; they are denoted as mixed-valence, mixed-configuration, or fluctuating-valence compounds. More than fifty mixed-valence compounds were known as of 1980, and many more, including a large number of alloys, have been discovered since (Varma, 1976; Kaldis, 1983).
