On the basis of the author's theory of dielectric breakdown, a quantitative calculation of the increase of the breakdown strength of ionic crystals due to the admixture of foreign atoms is carried out. Satisfactory agreement with von Hippel's experimental values is obtained. Furthermore, it is shown that F2(T) - Fp 2(T) should not depend on temperature. Here Fp(T) is the dielectric strength of a pure crystal at temperature T, and F(T) is the corresponding dielectric strength if foreign atoms are admixed in small concentration.
