Interstitial oxygen imaging from thermal donor growth — A fast photoluminescence based method

  title={Interstitial oxygen imaging from thermal donor growth — A fast photoluminescence based method},
  author={Tim Niewelt and Sung Yul Lim and J. J. Holtkamp and Jan Schone and Wilhelm Warta and Daniel MacDonald and Martin C. Schubert},
We present a fast method to create interstitial oxygen concentration maps from resistivity calibrated photoluminescence images prior to and after a heat treatment at 450 1C. The method utilizes the influence of thermal donors on the effective doping concentration of a sample. Although the determination of thermal donor concentrations from conductivity measurements is customary in literature, we found that implementation of a mobility model is necessary to determine accurate concentrations of… CONTINUE READING
