On the cyclic indentation behavior of crystalline silicon with a sharp tip
Detailed cyclic indentation experiments of crystalline silicon in this study show interesting behavior depending on the end phase from the previous cycle. To enable the behavior of these phases to be studied on reloading, the cyclic indentation response of the material is examined under conditions where the pressure-induced Si-II phase transforms either to amorphous (a-Si) or high pressure Si-XII/Si-III phases on unloading. For an amorphous end phase the subsequent reloading is hysteretic, and...[Show more]
