The electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy play a important role in identification and characterisation of various radiation induced defects and dislocations in silicon. This project aims to understand a mechanisms governing behaviour of various electron paramagnetic resonance spin Hamiltonian of defects in silicon, and in this way help to interpret EPR measurements results obtained on silicon samples irradiated with high energy particles in particles accelerators. The modelling of geometrical and electronic structure, as well as EPR spin Hamiltonian parameters of defects and dislocations in silicon in this project will be carried out using state of art hybrid density functional theory/molecular mechanics methods.
