We use extremely high sensitivity spin dependent recombination (SDR) measurements to evaluate hot hole injection induced damage in short channel MOSFETs. Our 29Si hyperfine SDR results provide a moderately precise measure of hot carrier defect electronic localization, hybridization, and (arguably) defect back bond angles. Our results futhermore provide a dramatic illustration of the power of SDR to provide detailed analytical information about individual transistors in real integrated circuits. To the best of our knowledge, our results represent the most sensitive magnetic resonance measurements of any kind ever made in solids.
