    The origin of a broad U band in spectra obtained using deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) of n-GaAs irradiated with fast neutrons and 65-MeV protons was investigated. It is believed that this band is presumably a superposition of two peaks related to two defects P2 and P3 which have been...

    A pump-and-probe technique was used to investigate shock effects on the photoluminescence spectra (∼833 nm) at T=80 K due to the direct transition E0 from the Γ6 conduction band to the Γ8 fourfold degenerate top valence band in GaAs. Under the shock loading condition, the...
