    It is proposed that a persistent photoconductivity (PPC) effect is universally produced by deep donors. The general requirements of a class of models which explains the PPC effect in semiconductors are discussed. In particular, donor dopants such as Si and Te in Ga1-xAlxAs with x∼0.3 are...

    Direct evidence has been found, via hydrostatic pressure experiments, that the random distribution of Al and Ga atoms (alloy broadening) is the main cause of the nonexponential behavior of thermal emission processes from DX centers in Ga1-xAlxAs alloys (0.19≤x≤0.74). Isothermal...

    The pressure dependence of the DX center in Ga1-xAlxAs :Te has been studied in two samples with x=0.15 and 0.35, respectively. The pressure coefficients of the activation energies for both emission and capture were found to change sign when the band gap of GaAlAs changes from direct to indirect....
