Diffusion of tellurium in undoped p-GaSb has been carried out. Using the cathodoluminescence and photoluminescence techniques, the luminescence centers in Te-diffused samples have been identified and compared with the Te-doped bulk GaSb. Fundamental differences in the radiative levels are observed between the diffused and the as-grown doped samples. Evidence for self-compensating acceptor complexes are seen in diffused samples. With short and moderate diffusion times, a compensating acceptor complex $V_{Ga}Ga_{Sb}Te_{Sb}$ is observed. For long diffusion times, the dominant acceptor center has been attributed to the antisite defect $Ga_{Sb}$ or related complex. The reasons for the formation of various acceptor centers have been discussed.
