Deep levels related to vanadium and chromium in n-type silicon have been studied using deep level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) and concentration profile measurements. In addition to traps due to interstitial species, an electron trap of EC-0.49 eV is observed in vanadium-doped n-type silicon, and three electron traps of EC-0.28, EC-0.45, and EC-0.54 eV are observed in chromium-doped n-type silicon by DLTS. These traps are observed only in the surface region of samples etched chemically with a mixture containing HF and HNO3 and annihilate after annealing at around 200 °C for 30 min. These traps are investigated by annealing and various chemical treatments. It is demonstrated that the traps are due to complexes ofhydrogen and interstitial vanadium or interstitial chromium.
