Electron emission in the recombination of Frenkel defects
BichevinV. V., Kaambre H. F.
A thermally stimulated electron emission is known1 to accompany the recombination of thermally deiocalized hole Vk centers with electron centers (77°, F, F'9 etc.). This electron emission is initiated by an ionization of electron centers which acquire energy released in recombination events. Our objective was to determine whether a recombination-associated thermally stimulated electron emission of this sort also occurs as Frenkel defects are annealed out. If it does, it would be of interest as a new source of information on these processes and as a manifestation of electron emission at extremely low temperatures.
