ABSTRACT
Capacitance-voltage (C-V) profiles are calculated self-consistently for δ-doped GaAs(Si) at kT=25 meV. Existing experimental data can only be explained if charge transfer to the DX center, which acts as an electron trap in the conduction band, is included. The depth resolution of C-V measurements is strongly enhanced when the DX center is occupied.
