What is the nature of the C-C complex in silicon? Insights from electronic structure calculations

cc complex defect in siliconIn this work we studied the C-C defect complex in silicon. We used different approaches in such a way to identity the defect configuration responsible for the strong light emission in irradiated silicon.
Our clues point towards a particular configuration, even if we suspect that in a damaged sample different type of complexes could be present at the same moment.
