The thermal stability, evolution and structure of the bond-centered-hydrogen (BCH) defect in crystalline silicon, its temperature induced dissociation, and the new H complexes formed have been studied in the temperature range from 50 K to 650 K by first-principles molecular dynamics (MD). We demonstrate that BCH is stable at 60 K, but decays at and above 310 K in agreement with experimental results. The dissolved BCH forms new complexes: transitional interstitials, stable monohydride-like and monohydride/dihydride-like complexes. The calculated asymmetric vibrational frequency of H in the BCH complex is 2000 cm-1, very close to the experimental values. Calculated vibrational frequencies, electron charge densities, electron densities of states (DOS), and optical spectra demonstrate noticeable differences for the different geometries with the BCH, interstitial and monohydride-like complexes, especially in the vicinity of the energy gap. The BCH complex is found to induce characteristic donor states below the conduction band, and raises the Fermi level to above the donor state energies.
