Defects Identified in SiC and Their Implications
Defect signatures, such as deep level positions, hyperfine parameters, local vibrational modes and optical transitions characterize a defect and enable the identification of defect centers. This identification is a key to an understanding of complex phenomena like the defect kinetics. Albeit density functional theory enabled the identification of several defects and their kinetic properties, a new approach is needed to address the optical excitation of defect. Within a quasiparticle theory and taking into account excitonic effects we analyze the excited states of VC +.
