    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A model for amorphous chalcogenide semiconductors predicts an intrinsic photoinduced paramagnetic band of metastable states which may absorb light and give rise to an electron spin resonance. In addition, a wide band of non-magnetic (two-particle) metastable states may be occupied, especially in doped samples. The bandwidths are evaluated and the optical spectrum is deduced in good agreement with experiment.
