Tin-vacancy complexes Snn-Vm, n≤2, m≤2, are investigated by first-principles cluster and supercell methods. Their structures, spin-densities, electrical levels and formation energies are reported. It is found that the tin-vacancy interaction is short ranged and consequently the diffusion mechanism of Sn is somewhat different from that of the E-center. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
