Density-functional supercell calculations are employed to follow the location of the donor levels arising from interstitial carbon and interstitial carbon-oxygen complexes in SiGe alloys. We show that these complexes interact weakly with neighboring Ge atoms, and that energetics rules out the existence of defect-Ge complexes involving direct Ge-C or Ge-O bonds. The C iOi defect is predicted to produce a hole trap that varies as E(0/+) - Ev = 0.41 - 0.76x eV, implying its disappearance for Ge fractions x greater than 0.5. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
