We have studied the Ec - 0.4 e V center in O-doped GaAs by a combination of temperature-dependent Hall-effect measurements, spark-source mass spectroscopy, and secondary-ion mass spectroscopy. The conclusion is that neither 0 nor any other impurity can account for the O.4-eV center; therefore, it is a pure defect.
