In this study the use of the high-resolution Laplace DLTS combined with uniaxial stress has allowed us to investigate in detail the structure and electrical properties of the platinum-hydrogen-related complex PtH2. We correlate the defect electronic level with the results of other spectroscopic studies performed with electron paramagnetic resonance and far-infrared absorption measurements. The observed stress-induced peak splitting pattern confirms the orthorhombic-IC2v symmetry of the complex. The re-orientation process of the defect can be observed at temperatures higher than the room temperature for all bias conditions.
