Abstract

We report the first observation of a nitrogen dangling bond center in nitrided thermally grown silicon dioxide films on silicon. Interpretation of the 14N hyperfine parameters indicates that the unpaired electron wave function is strongly localized on the central nitrogen and that the wave function is highly p in character.
