A study of p‐type silicon shows that (1) the annealing temperature of electron‐irradiation damage increases as the acceptor concentration increases and (2) the isochronal annealing behavior of damage in samples with gallium and aluminum impurities is different from that in boron‐containing samples, which show a higher annealing temperature.
