    Photoinduced electron paramagnetic resonance studies performed on nominally semi-insulating, high purity 4H-SiC have revealed charge transfer from an intrinsic defect (ID) to both the shallow boron acceptor and nitrogen donor. At 4 K, incident photon energy between 1.0 and 1.7 eV produces an...
