In situ electrical measurements during nanoindentation of Czochralski grown p-type crystalline silicon (100) have been performed using a conducting diamond Berkovich indenter tip. Through-tip current monitoring with a sensitivity of ∼10pA and extraction of current-voltage curves at various points on the complete load-unload cycle have been used to track the phase transformations of silicon during the loading and unloading cycle. Postindent current-voltage curves prove to be extremely sensitive...[Show more]
