The theoretical basis of density functional pseudopotential methods for determining the properties of defects in semiconductors is given. The formalism is applied to a single illustrative defect, the carbon interstitial in silicon, which has been identified by electron paramagnetic resonance, vibrational mode spectroscopy, photoluminescence and deep-level transient spectroscopy. The theory is shown to largely account for the properties of the defect.
