It was observed that the nanocrystals could be uniformly distributed in the bulk of the oxide when annealed at 800 °C, or could result in regions with different nanocrystal densities and size distributions in the bulk of the oxide separated by a region void of nanocrystals when annealed at 900 °C. For annealing at 1000 °C, nanocrystals were only observed at the silicon-silicon dioxide interface and these have significant size variation, with the rest of the oxide being void of nanocrystals. The nanocrystals formed at 900 and 1000 °C were generally found to be defective.||Source Title:||Journal of Crystal Growth||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/70365||ISSN:||00220248||DOI:||10.1016/j.jcrysgro.2005.12.033|
