Nanoindentation of Si Nanocrystals in SiO2

Pok, W; Bradby, Jodie; Elliman, Robert


Nanoindentation is used to investigate the effects of mechanical deformation on systems of silicon nanocrystals (Sinc) embedded in SiO 2. The process is found to introduce non-radiative defects to the crystals which quench their luminescence in the localised region of the indent. The transformation to high-pressure metastable phases in the underlying Si substrate is characterised by Raman spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy, with the critical load found to be between 50 and 100 mN...[Show more]
