Measurements of Liquid Silicon Resistivity on Silicon Microwires

  • Gokhan Bakan (a1), Kadir Cil (a2), Adam Cywar (a3), Helena Silva (a4) and Ali Gokirmak (a5)...

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.
