Abstract

Electrical characteristics of silicon light emitting devices are changed in similar ways by X-irradiation and hot carrier stresses. Extended hot carrier stress alone causes coalescence of light emission consistent with junction-localized boron passivation by liberated hydrogen. Optical characterization studies demonstrate the formation of junction micro-environments under hot carrier stress.
