The insulator to metal transition in doped semiconductors appears to be best des-cribed in terms of an Anderson-type model in which randomness plays a central role. A quantitative analysis of the optical properties of an example of such systems is presented illustrating the importance of random fluctuations and electron-hole interactions at the transition.
