Electrical Properties of Silicon p-n Junctions Subjected to Nonuniform Deformation

  • A. L. Polyakova
  • V. V. Shklovskaya-Kordi


A study was made of the influence of nonuniform deformation, caused by the pressure of a sharp corundum needle, on the current flowing through shallow p-n junctions in silicon. Two ranges of forces applied to the needle are distinguished: weak forces, whose effects are reversible, and strong forces, whose effects are irreversible. The concept of a critical force Fcr, dividing these two ranges, is introduced. Comparison of the experimental data with the theory is carried out in the weak-force range.
