A Pd-vacancy (Pd-V-) complex in Si has been identified with the perturbed angular correlation technique using the radioactive Pd100 probe produced by recoil implantation. The fraction of Pd probes in the complex has been determined as a function of dopant type (B, P, As, and Sb), dopant concentration (1015-6×1019cm-3) and annealing temperature (21-500°C). The Pd-V- complex, with a unique interaction frequency of 13.1(2)MHz, was observed only in n+-Si with a maximum relative fraction of ∼52%...[Show more]
