Indentation-induced phase transformations in silicon as a function of history of unloading

Fujisawa, N.; Keikotlhaile, R.T.; Bradby, J.E.; Williams, J.S.


A crystalline silicon surface, loaded by a Berkovich indenter to a constant maximum load, was unloaded using three unload functions, each consisting of five linear segments of equal time period. The first function had an exponentially decaying unload rate and was found to promote a pop-out event more readily than the second function, having a linear unload rate, or the third case with its unload rate increasing with time. Statistical analyses of experimental data suggest that the unload...[Show more]
