We demonstrated the effectiveness of photoluminescence (PL) measurement at liquid N temperature after electron irradiation for the determination of the C concentration in P-doped n-type Czochralski-grown Si crystals. The disappearance of P-related lines simplifies the spectral analysis at 77 K, enabling us to estimate the C concentration from the G-line intensity ratio regardless of the difference in P concentration. The C concentration estimated by PL measurement at 77 K was in good agreement with those by measurement PL at 4.2 K and IR absorption. Unsusceptibility to the concentration of dopant impurities is a practical advantage of the PL measurement at 77 K over that at 4.2 K.
