Paper Abstract

High effect measurements were carried out in the 500 - 1200 K temperature range under controlled Cd vapor pressure (PCd equals 10-5-3 atm). Samples' saturation by In was performed from the vapor phase at 1073 K under PIn during 24 or 240 hours. The In concentration in the sample was about approximately 1019 and approximately 1020 at/cm3 respectively. Up to 500 K and PmaxCd the electron concentration [e-] in the heavy doped samples is temperature independent, it is characterized by the slope (Delta) E equals 0.4 eV and reaches the maximum value of approximately 3 X 1018 at/cm3. The temperature dependence in the sample, containing approximately 1019 at/cm3 In, has a maximum ]e-] value and then decreases. The results can be described by a defect structure model, supposing, that the dominating defects are In+Cd defects and complex associates of the (In+Cd V2-Cd)- type, but an essential role play V2-Cd and the increase of In solubility with temperature also.
