Abstract: This thesis entitled Electrical and Photoacoustic Studies on Phase Transitions in Certain Ammonium Containing Crystals. In the present thesis a series of exhaustive investigations have been carried out on a number of crystalline samples with special reference to the phase transitions exhibited by them. These include single crystals of pure, doped or deuterated specimens of certain ammonium containing crystals viz., (NH4 )3H(SO4)2, (NH4)2HPO4, (NH4)2Cr2O7 and NH4H2PO4. ac/dc electrical conductivity, dielectric constant, ionic thermocurrent as well as photoacoustic measurements have been carried out on most of them over a wide range of temperature. In addition investigations have been carried out in pure and doped single crystals of NaClO3 and NaNO3 using ionic thermocurrent measurements and newlinethese are presented here. Special attention has been paid to reveal the mechanism of electrical conduction in various phases of these crystals and to evaluate the different parameters involved in the conduction as well as phase transition process.
