The formation of a disordered defect region in bulk silicon is simulated using the molecular-dynamics method for various energies of a primary recoil atom. Variations in the volume and number of radiation-induced defects in a cluster during its formation are calculated. The generation rates of nonequilibrium carriers and amplitude-temporal dependences of pulses of ionization currents in test Schottky diodes with hyperhigh frequencies are found theoretically.
