Fundamental processes such as charge generation, trapping and emission, and collection in scanning deep level transient spectroscopy (SDLTS) are analyzed. It is concluded that SDLTS is more sensitive to minority-carrier traps than to majority-carrier traps and that a two-dimensional map of SDLTS peak signal magnitude, i.e., SDLTS image, of minority-carrier traps does not necessarily show the trap concentration distribution. A practical equation for trap concentration is derived by utilizing an electron beam induced current. Concentration of a hole trap with an activation energy 0.45 eV in an n-type as-grown liquid encapsulated Czochralski GaAs is calculated to be 1×1016 cm-3.
