Nickel-Vacancy Complexes in Diamond: An Ab-Initio Investigation

Abstract:

Article Preview

The electronic and structural properties of nickel-vacancy complexes in diamond were investigated by a total energy ab initio methodology. These results are discussed in the context of the electrically active centers, commonly found in synthetic diamond.
