Uniaxial stress has been used with transient spectroscopy to study the level at Ec-0.17 eV in neutron-irradiated silicon. The defect symmetry, observed stress-induced electronic redistribution, and preferential stress-induced defect orientation have been determined and the reorientation activation energy has been measured. All of these effects are consistent with the A center.
