In this thesis, we have studied two types of charge carrier capturing and detrapping processes: (a) electron capturing and electron liberation; (b) hole
capturing and hole liberation. Both the (a) and (b) processes can be utilized for the rational design of afterglow and storage phosphors in different compounds.
