Abstract: Deep level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) and Laplace-DLTS have been used to investigate the defects created in Sb doped Ge after irradiation with 2 MeV protons having a fluence of 1×1013 protons/cm2. The results show that proton irradiation resulted in primary hole traps at EV +0.15 and EV +0.30 eV and electron traps at EC −0.38, EC −0.32, EC −0.31, EC −0.22, EC −0.20, EC −0.17, EC −0.15 and EC −0.04 eV. Defects observed in this study are compared with those introduced in similar samples after MeV electron irradiation reported earlier. EC −0.31, EC −0.17 and EC −0.04, and EV +0.15 eV were not observed previously in similar samples after high energy irradiation. Results from this study suggest that although similar defects are introduced by electron and proton irradiation, traps introduced by the latter are dose dependent.
