Experimental methods used to determine the concentrations and charge states of native point defects in III-V and II-VI semiconductors are outlined. The use of a chemical thermodynamic model to unify the very large amount of experimental data on the III-Vs is described. It is demonstrated how dopant solubility, self and dopant diffusion, annealing behaviour and phase extent are all coupled to types, concentrations and charge states of the native point defects.
