Abstract

Photoinduced effects on the dynamics of the diamagnetic muon species (μd) and of bond-centred muonium MuBC0 in crystalline silicon were studied as a function of temperature and doping. Below 40 K, the photoinduced relaxation in boron-doped as well as undoped silicon can be explained by the temperature and doping dependence of the mobility of the photogenerated charge carriers. In undoped silicon, the observed photoinduced enhancement of the precession amplitude and of the muon-spin relaxation of the diamagnetic signal indicates that a long-living intermediate diamagnetic state is formed in the illuminated samples.
