The interaction of Pt with electron irradiation induced defects has been observed. Platinum in silicon increases irradiation-induced defects remarkably, especially of the A center, and lowers the annealing temperature to 220-140°C for the A and E centers, respectively. The level Ea (0.23) in the Pt-doped silicon is the Pt(-/0) level, an acceptor like the A center.
