Surface Modification of Silicon Nano Mechanical Structures by Carbon Ion Implantation for Post-fabrication Transformation to Silicon Carbide

Virwani, Kumar; Sood, Dinesh Kumar; Elliman, Robert; Malshe, Ajay P


Internal stresses can cause de-lamination and fracture of coatings and structures and it is well known that ion-implantation can be used to control such behavior through modification of the stress. Here, however, we show that the unique ability of implantation to create controlled stresses in materials by altering both the chemical composition and mechanical properties, combined with an increase in the bending strength of materials, can used to create novel vertical nanostructures. Silicon...[Show more]
