A theory which explains self-consistently the emission and the polarization rotation of transmitted light has been developed for F A centres in crystals with cubic symmetry. Azimuthal dependences of F A luminescence in alkali halides are very informative for determining the electron-phonon interaction as well as the parameters related to the structural and optical quality for coulour centre lasers crystals. The theoretical results are applied to the interpretation of the luminescence properties of F A (Li) centres in KCl, RbCl and KF. © 1994 Società Italiana di Fisica.
