Abstract

Results are presented which indicate a clear connection between the excitation mechanisms of the 260 K and 150 K glow peaks in semiconducting diamond when excited at 80 K by λ=360 nm. Excitations in this wavelength region and with λ=225 nm at T≥150 K, however, seem to indicate that under these conditions, different mechanisms are involved. A model is discussed which takes into account the new observations.
