Abstract

First-principles calculations are used to explore the structure and properties of several defects which are prominent luminescent centers in Si. The trigonal defects B41 and B711, which are known to contain two hydrogen atoms in equivalent and inequivalent sites, respectively, are attributed to a hexavacancy containing two H atoms in different configurations. It is suggested that the J luminescence centers arises from a stable hexavacancy without hydrogen atoms.
