The dotted (TM) lines depict the strong temperature dependence of the ionization energies of localized, host independent donor levels that could be related to, for example, substitutional transition metal impurities [41]. The level related to TM-i would be an intermediate level in the bandgap at RT and would move into the conduction band continuum at high temperatures. The CO-ND line indicates the possible behavior of a donor state that is primarily buildup from cation orbitals, which could cause the level to somewhat follow the conduction band edge with the temperature.

Several specific mechanisms and their combinations have been proposed and investigated since the 1950s, mostly in context with the opposite technical problem of achieving high n- or p-type conductivity in the more ionic II–VI and III–V semiconductor systems for optoelectronic applications such as light-emitting devices [59,60]. In the latter case, self-compensation needs to be prevented or at least limited while in the radiation detector field, and it is exactly this mechanism that helps to achieve semi-insulating properties at relatively low deep-level concentrations.
