Controlling Indentation-induced Phases of Silicon
Silicon (Si) is the backbone of the semiconductor industry. The widespread use of Si is largely due to the useful electrical and optical properties of the material in its standard, diamond cubic (dc) crystal structure. However, in recent years, there has been an increasing interest in the properties of Si with different crystal structures (phases). In particular, the metastable phases formed through pressure application have been the topic of much study due to...[Show more]
