[en] Time differential perturbed angular correlation spectroscopy was performed for different orientations of crystalline germanium following diluted doping of the material with the hyperfine interactions probe 100Pd/100Rh. Results are interpreted in order to identify the crystallographic orientation of a palladium defect pairing that is most pronounced following annealing at 500 °C. Orientation in the <100> direction can be excluded. The data are consistent with a substitutional palladium atom pairing with a vacancy in a nearest-neighbours configuration and the pair being oriented in the <111> direction. This is similar to the palladium-vacancy pairing known to occur in n-type silicon.
