Deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) is an experimental tool for studying electrically active defects (known as charge carrier traps) in semiconductors. DLTS establishes fundamental defect parameters and measures their concentration in the material. Some of the parameters are considered as defect "finger prints" used for their identifications and analysis. This chapter focuses on photoconductivity (PC) and transient spectroscopy techniques including photo-induced transient spectroscopy (PITS) and deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS). Spectral photoconductivity provides a powerful tool for measuring the band-gap energy and optical transitions in semiconductors. On the other hand, transient photoconductivity can be used to determine the time.

The current (or conductance) deep level transient spectroscopy (CDLTS) measurements were performed by applying both a drain to source voltage of 8 V, in the linear regime, and a drain to source voltage of 18V in the saturation region. The steady-state reverse bias and filling pulse voltages applied to the gate were V and 0V.

The deep level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) is a versatile method for monitoring and characterizing deep levels caused by defects and impurities in complete devices and semiconductor materials. This method is also suitable for determining all parameters related to deep traps including capture cross section, energy level, and concentration. @article{osti_, title = {Gallium interstitial in irradiated germanium: Deep level transient spectroscopy}, author = {Kolkovsky, Vl and Petersen, M Christian and Larsen, A Nylandsted and Mesli, A and Gheluwe, J van and Clauws, P}, abstractNote = {Two electronic levels at eV above the valence band and eV below the conduction band, in gallium doped, p-type Ge irradiated with 2.   Deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) is an experimental tool for studying electrically active defects in semiconductors.
