Deep level transient spectroscopy has been performed on the DX center in the Ga0.65Al0.35As:Te as a function of pressure. The lattice relaxation we observed showed that the results of Talwar et al. (small lattice relaxation) are inconsistent and inconclusive. Our results significantly weaken their evidence in favor of small lattice relaxation. (AIP)
