Understanding pressure-induced phase-transformation behavior in silicon through in situ electrical probing under cyclic loading conditions

Fujisawa, N.; Ruffell, S.; Bradby, J. E.; Williams, J. S.; Haberl, Bianca; Warren, O. L.


Cyclic indentation of crystalline silicon exhibits interesting pressure-induced phase-transformation behavior whereby sequential changes in the phase composition ultimately lead to a catastrophic (“pop-out”) event during subsequent cycles and complete transformation to high pressure Si-III and Si-XII phases. This study combines in situ electrical measurements with cyclic loading to monitor such phase-transformation behavior. We find that, if a pop-out is not observed on the unloading curve, the...[Show more]
