Paper Title:
Nitrogen Donor Aggregation in 4H-SiC: g-Tensor Calculations
  Abstract

The microscopic origin of the Nx EPR-lines observed in heavily nitrogen doped 4H-SiC and 6H-SiC is discussed with the help of EPR parameters calculated from first principles. Based on the symmetry of the g-tensors we propose a model with distant NC donor pairs on inequivalent lattice sites which are coupled to S=1 centers but with nearly vanishing zero-field splittings, giving rise to an essentially S=1/2 like spectrum. The proposed aggregation in neutral donor pairs can contribute to the saturation of the free concentration observed in heavily nitrogen doped SiC.
