First-principles calculations are used to investigate the interaction of self-interstitial aggregates with the 90° partial dislocation in Si. We find that I4 is bound to the line with an energy of around 3 eV. The defect causes deep levels to appear in the band gap and optical transitions between these levels may account for the luminescent bands relating to plastically deformed Si.
