The authors of the above paper call into question recent evidence on the properties of self-interstitials, I, in Ge [Cowern ., Phys. Rev. Lett. , 155501 (2013)]. We show that this judgment stems from invalid model assumptions during analysis of data on B marker-layer diffusion during proton irradiation, and that a corrected analysis fully supports the reported evidence. As previously stated, I-mediated self-diffusion in Ge exhibits two distinct regimes of temperature, : high-, dominated by amorphous-like mono-interstitial clusters—imorphs—with self-diffusion entropy ≈30  and low-, where transport is dominated by simple self-interstitials. In a transitional range centered on 475 °C both mechanisms contribute. The experimental I migration energy of 1.84 ± 0.26 eV reported by the Münster group based on measurements of self-diffusion during irradiation at 550 °C < T < 680 °C further establishes our proposed i-morph mechanism.
