First-principles calculations are used to explore the structure and properties of several defects which are prominent luminescent centers in Si. The trigonal defects B-41 and B-1/71, which are known to contain two hydrogen atoms in equivalent and inequivalent sites, respectively, are attributed to a hexavacancy containing two H atoms in different configurations. It is suggested that the J luminescence centers arises from a stable hexavacancy without hydrogen atoms.
