A dynamic method is used to calculate the equilibrium positions of ions near heavy and light homologous impurities for KCl:J and KJ:Cl crystals. The most probable sites of self-traps are shown. Lattice ralaxation near an excited anion is modeled. The localization of electron excitations (EE) in alkali-halide crystals is examined from the viewpointof the formation of a covalent bond between anions as a relust of their approach toward each other. The EE localization time is determined by the lifetime of local vibrations in the crystal near the excited anions (5-10-13-10-11 sec).
