However, as it was shown in [16,17], at T < 17 K the value of KO actually does not depend upon temperature but only upon resolution and apodization function [4]. Thus, at 8 K and at resolution of 0.3 cm-1, it is equal to 1.05 · 1016 at/cm2 [4]. While determining the impurity of oxygen in natural and mono-isotopic (see below) Si we used the value of KO = 1.23 · 1016 at/cmestimated for the series of silicon samples with various content of oxygen and registered with spectral resolution of 0.5 cm-1 at T = 17 K (IChHPS) and T = 5K (PTB).

The coefficient KO = 1.23 · 1016 at/cm2 has been derived by means of measurements of the same material at low and at room temperature and the use of the generally accepted value of KO = 3.14 · 1016 at/cm2 for the calculation of the oxygen content from the room temperature spectrum.

It follows from the previous section that in order to provide an edaquate description of the absorption bands of the carbon and oxygen impurities in silicon with natural composition the data are required on lattice vibrations, i. e. on spectral position and on intensity of different phonon modes observed in the absorption range of the stated impurities. At going to isotopically enriched samples alongside with the averaged lattice mass change both the phonon spectrum of the matrix, and position of Si-16O-Si and Si-12C quasi-molecule bands, comprising the silicon atoms of the given isotops should be changed.

It can be seen that in going from resolution 0.5 cm-1 to 0.1 cm-1 the FWHM slightly decreases and at further increase of resolution becomes constant and equal to (0.59 ± 0.01) cm-1. It is evidence for registration of true shape of this band. This value agrees with FWHM of the same band in spectrum of nat the Si [5,16,17].

Unfortunately, the registration of true band shapes of 29 Si-16O-29Si and Si-16O-30Si quasi-molecules in spectra 29 of Si and Si was impossible due to high concentration Figure 7.

The obtained earlier theoretically in [20,21] and experimentally determined in [13] spectral position of the Si-16O-29Si band agrees satisfactorily with the experimental value for Si obtained in this study (Table 6). The spectral position of Si-16O-30Si band was determined earlier in [22] nat from spectrum of Si but containing 3 · 1017 cm-3 of oxygen, as well as in isotopically enriched Si [13]. It can be seen from Table 6 that these values are very close to the experimental one obtained here for Si and is by 3.6 cm-higher as compared with the predicted value [20]. The 28 isotopic shift of oxygen bands of Si and of Si amounts 3.8 cm-1 just as the shift of the oxygen bands of Si and of Si. The isotopic shift, theoretically predicted in [20,21], was slightly greater and equal to 5.3 cm-1 that Figure 8.
