1 General concepts The concept of amphoteric impurity, as applied to semiconductors, was first introduced by Dunlap in 1955, when analyzing electrical properties of germanium doped with gold. It was found that gold could behave as a donor or as an acceptor in the same semiconductor crystal. This behavior fully agrees with the definition of amphoteric behavior as the ability to produce positive and negative ions. Note that a sequence of two processes—ionization and de-ionization—is always possible in semiconductors.

A strongly localized electron interacts only with the nearest host atoms. 10. Yan–Teller distortions of the Pt-group impurity atoms in a tetrahedral field [39].

Moreover, there may be associates of point defects in a crystal, which show an amphoteric behavior, whereas the individual components have no amphoteric properties. Complex amphoteric centers produced by interactions of various point defects will be called associative amphoteric centers and denoted as Aa. The first three types of centers manifest their amphoteric properties in elemental semiconductors, such as Ge and Si, and all five types are found in AIIIBV and AIIBVI semiconductor compounds.
