A Comparison of the Mechanical properties and the impact of contact induced damage in a- and c- Axis ZnO Single crystals

Coleman, Victoria A; Bradby, Jodie; Jagadish, Chennupati; Phillips, Matthew R


Nanoindentation studies were conducted on a-axis oriented ZnO single crystals. The mechanical properties and deformation mechanisms were monitored and compared to previously determined data from c-axis material. Hardness and modulus values reveal that a-axis ZnO is significantly softer than c-axis material (hardness of 2 ± 0.2 GPa), and behaves more plastically. Additionally, the influence of contact induced damage on the defect structure of a-axis material was examined using...[Show more]
