Comments on the phase transformations induced in relaxed amorphous silicon by indentation at room temperature. Information that Raman spectroscopy was used to show clearly that when a Vickers diamond indenter was loaded at room temperature on to a 300-nanometer-thick amorphous film of silicon that was deposited on a 0.4-mm-thick plate of sapphire; Report that the amorphous film was produced by silicon ion implantation of an epitaxial crystalline silicon film deposited on the sapphire; Information on the diamond anvil experiments.
