Abstract Neutron transmutation doped (NTD) silicon crystals grown in a hydrogen atmosphere have been investigated by infrared absorption spectroscopy at a low temperature (10 K). An effective-mass-like donor state HD0/+ has been found at 110.8 meV below the conduction band bottom after rapid thermal annealing (RTA). The HD0/+ formation mechanism after NTD and RTA is briefly discussed, and tentatively attributed to H atoms present in the vicinity of some residual irradiation defects, like a complex of a H atom and a H-saturated vacancy.
