We have observed, for the first time, spin dependent trapping in a silicon grain boundary. The results are quantitatively explained in terms of paramagnetic "dangling bond" interface traps and a majority carrier thermionic emission model. This is a sensitive and informative probe of defects in grain boundaries.
