Optical properties of gallium iodide GaI3 have been studied for the first time in the energy range of 2 - 8 eV. The fundamental absorption edge is located at 3.1 eV at 15 K, and it shows anomalously large red shift with increasing temperature. It is found that a logarithmic plot of the absorption coefficient gives a straight line for all temperatures investigated, indicating that the absorption edge of GaI3 is well described by the Urbach rule. The exciton-phonon interaction and the exciton relaxation process are discussed on the basis of these results as well as the luminescence result.
