Abstract:

This report covers a study of the relationship between minority carrier properties and majority carrier hole and acceptor concentrations. This report documents the following conclusions The dominant recombination mechanism is Shockley-Read not radiative. The recombination center is at 140 meV above the valence band edge and has a concentration proportional to the acceptor concentration.
