The dislocation related photoluminescence in silicon was investigated. The stability and electrical activity, bound to 90° and 30° partial dislocations, was investigated. A fully self-consistent density functional method (AIMPRO) was used to obtain the binding energy of four interstitials in I4. The AIMPRO method gave optical transitions around 0.8-0.9 eV for isolated I3 and I4 defects which is in agreement with the W and X transitions. Transmission electron microscopy images showed that the mobility of dislocations was obstructed by interstitial aggregates.
