ABSTRACT
Fourier transform infrared absorption spectroscopy has been used to reveal the presence of two previously unknown shallow acceptor levels formed by neutron irradiation of Si:Ga. Absorption peaks corresponding to the strongest lines of groups III-like acceptor spectra were observed and were determined to originate from ground states with binding energies of 42.4 and 56.3 meV. These levels are designated A[sub 3] and A[sub 4], respectively. The annealing behavior of both levels is discussed and compared to other known shallow acceptor levels created in neutron-irradiated Si:Ga.
