The effect of the local oxygen concentration in ion-implanted amorphous Si (a-Si) on nanoindentation-inducedphase transformations has been investigated. Implantation of oxygen into the a-Sifilms has been used to controllably introduce an approximately constant concentration of oxygen, ranging from ∼10¹⁸ to ∼10²¹ cm⁻³, over the depth range of the phase transformed zones. Nanoindentation was performed under conditions that ensure a phase transformed zone composed completely of Si-III/XII in the...[Show more]
