First-principles computational methods are employed to investigate the structural, vibrational, optical and electronic properties of the self-interstitial aggregate, I4 in silicon. We find the defect to be electrically active and identify it with the B3 EPR centre. We also show that its properties are consistent with DLTS and optical spectra observed following implantation of silicon.
