Swift heavy ion (SHI) irradiation of amorphous Si (a-Si) at non-perpendicular incidence leads to non-saturable plastic flow. The positive direction of flow suggests that a liquid phase of similar density to that of the amorphous solid must exist and accordingly a-Si behaves like a conventional glass under SHI irradiation. For room-temperature irradiation of a-Si, plastic flow is accompanied by swelling due to the formation of voids and a porous structure. For this paper, we have investigated...[Show more]
