Abstract [en]

Using first-principles calculations, the electronic structure of the phosphorus-vacancy pair in silicon has been studied. Detailed analysis of the atomic displacement fields associated with the atomic structure optimization after the defect formation indicates a strong dependence of the character and magnitude of relaxation both on the supercell size and the E-center charge state. Our simulation results strongly suggest that the E-center structure is of the resonant-bond type with a strong localization of an electron pair at the phosphorus atom. The energy level splitting for shared electrons in a vacancy due to the appearance of the resonance distortion is discussed, as well as the nature of and the reasons for the level occupation.
