DLTS studies of transformation kinetics of different carbon–related complexes in electron irradiated n- and p-type silicon have been performed. It has been found that silicon self-interstitials have very low mobility even at room temperature in p-Si, but become extremely mobile under elec-tron injection. It is shown that upon annealing of interstitial carbon in p-Si a metastable state for interstitial carbon-interstitial oxygen complex is formed. This state has an energy level of about Еv+0.36 eV. The formation of the stable and metastable states takes place concurrently. The observed features of the carbon-related complexes formation are likely related to the existence of different crystallographic orientation of the equiprobable pathways through which the interstitial carbon and oxygen atoms can approach each other.
