Abstract

For pt.I see ibid., vol.8, 1102 (1975). A general method has been developed for performing self-consistent calculations for shallow defects or defect complexes in semiconductors. Results are given here for donor-acceptor pairs in GaP and a comparison is made of the various treatments of central-cell corrections and the effects arising from the overlap of the donor and acceptor wavefunctions. Whilst no detailed refitting of host parameters is attempted, it seems likely that the current estimate of the band gap (2.339 eV) is too large, and the latest estimates of the dielectric constant may also be inaccurate.
