Optimised indentation conditions for large-area phase transformations in Silicon

Wong, Sherman


Silicon has long been the most important material in semiconductor technology, having a huge impact in the field. This is predominantly due to its highly useful electrical and optical properties. It has also been shown to phase transform under pressure, from the diamond cubic Si-I that is ubiquitous in our modern society, to several different phases. Of particular interest is the rhombohedral Si-XII phase which, while showing some similar optical and electrical properties to Si-I, has...[Show more]
