Chemical Trends in Electronic Properties of Gold-3D Transition Metal Impurity Pairs in Silicon

  • J. F. Justo (a1) and L. V. C. Assali (a2)

Abstract

We report theoretical investigations of the chemical trends in the electronic properties of substitutional gold-interstitial transition-metal complexes in silicon. The results show that the stable pairs in trigonal symmetry are formed by a covalent mechanism which includes, besides Au and TM impurities, also the Si neighbors, rather than being derived from interactions between two electrostatically bound point charges.
