Pagination or Media Count:
The isothermal recovery of n-type germanium after irradiation by electrons at 20 degrees K is studied by electrical conductivity measurements around 65 degrees K. This study shows that the reaction involved in this temperature range is a diffusion controlled recombination of strongly correlated pairs, thus indicating close vacancy-interstitial pairs. The isochronal recovery of n-type germanium after irradiation by electrons at 20 degrees K is studied by Hall effect and resistivity measurements. Results are discussed.
