TEM observations on grain boundaries in sintered silicon

View publication


Grain boundaries in silicon with a predetermined orientation have been prepared by the sintering of two single crystals. A combination of standard transmission electron microscopy and lattice imaging was used to investigate the Structure of the boundaries produced. Low–angle grain boundaries on {100} and {111} planes, and twin boundaries on {111} planes are discussed in detail. © 1979 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
