Nanocrystalline silicon microwires are self-heated through microsecond voltage pulses. Nonlinear changes in current level are observed during the voltage pulse, which end with melting of the microwires. Liquid silicon resistivity is extracted as 65.9 ± 6.1 μΩ.cm from the minimum resistance of the wire during the voltage pulse. The extracted resistivity is in good agreement with previously reported values.
