Effect of processing under high hydrostatic pressure (= 1.1 GPa), applied at 1270 K, on Czochralski grown silicon with interstitial oxygen content (cO) up to 1.1×1018 cm-3, admixed with N or Ge (Si-N, cN≤1.2×1015 cm-3, or Si-Ge, cGe≈7×1017 cm-3, respectively), pre-annealed at up to 1400 K and next irradiated with γ-rays (dose, D up to 2530 Mrad, at energy E = 1.2 MeV), was investigated by high resolution X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and synchrotron topography. Processing of γ-irradiated Si-N and Si-Ge under high pressure leads to stimulated precipitation of oxygen at the nucleation sites created by irradiation. It means that radiation history of Si-N and Si-Ge can be revealed by appropriate high temperature-high pressure processing.
