ABSTRACT
The C(3) vibrational lines at 865 and 1115 cm-1 are shown to correlate in intensity with the 790-meV vibronic band in irradiated Czochralski silicon. The C(3)/790 meV lines may be used as a sensitive measure of the concentration of carbon in silicon.

    Carbon diffusion into silicon is well behaved and does not generate any nonequilibrium point defects. We show that, in contrast, the diffusion of carbon incorporated in silicon well above its solid solubility will cause an undersaturation of silicon self-interstitials, which in turn may cause...

    It was found that red clover utilizes from 1.1 to 1.4 kg of CO 2 from the atmosphere to produce 1 kg of dry mattter. This means that 1400 to 1600m 3 of atmospheric air become completely purified from carbon dioxide. Red clover plants usually lose 40.9% of their crop weight during the winter....
