The generation of electrically neutral E′ centers was studied. It was found that the generation of these centers is accompanied by a large monotonic increase in leakage currents and that the disappearance of these centers is accompanied by a monotonic decrease in leakage currents. Overall, the results indicate an important role for E′ centers in stress induced leakage currents.
