The electronic properties of the C center defect in silicon (Si) have been investigated by ab initio density functional theory (DFT). The C center is a boron- vacancy (B-V) pair in Si. We present the properties of four (4) configurations of the C center. We report defect levels for isolated BSi and VSi at Ev+0.07 eV and Ev+0.21 eV respectively for the 0/-1 thermodynamic transition, and Ev+0.08 eV and Ev+0.06 eV for two configurations of the C center compared to experimentally reported levels at Ev+0.5 eV and Ev+0.36 eV. The other two configurations of the C center did not have levels for the 0/-1 transition. We report configurationally charge-induced metastability of the C center in the four different configurations occurring in the negative charge states of the defect.
