    For ZnO, the use of nitrogen has been suggested to achieve p-type doping. Unfortunately, the doping efficiency is rather low. One cause could be the formation of N molecules, which are widely believed to be inert. Here, we show that molecular nitrogen can cause defects in the ZnO lattice with...
