Annealing kinetics of nanoindentation-induced polycrystalline high pressure phases in crystalline silicon

Ruffell, Simon; Bradby, Jodie; Williams, James S


Transformation kinetics of nanoindented zones in silicon containing high pressure crystalline phases (Si III and Si XII) during annealing (100 °C<T<450 °C) have been studied using Raman microspectroscopy and cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy. Signature peaks associated with Si III/XII in the Raman spectra were monitored to track the annealing of these phases to polycrystalline Si I as a function of annealing time and temperature. An overall activation energy for this...[Show more]
