Paper Title:
Effect of bct-5 Si on the Indentation of Monocrystalline Silicon
  Abstract

Mono-crystalline silicon experiences various phase transformations under different loading conditions. This paper reveals, with the aid of molecular dynamics simulations, that scratching the silicon {001} surface along the [110] direction under a load of 0.8 µN or more would produce stable 5 coordinated body centered tetragonal (bct-5) silicon in the subsurface. By examining the effect of this bct-5 silicon on indentation, it was found that the resistant to deformation of bct-5 silicon is higher than a-Si but lower than diamond Si.
