The methods of vacuum-ultraviolet and thermal activation spectroscopy were used to measure the excitation spectra of impurity radiation in the fundamental absorption band of K2SO4-Cu crystals at 15 K and 300 K. An energy transfer was detected from the base to Cu + impurities. The band gap of crystals K 2 SO 4 was estimated. In K2SO4-Cu crystals, recombination radiation bands were detected at 2.95 ÷ 3.0 eV corresponding to electron-hole capture centers.
