Thermodynamically stable amorphous intergranular films in nanocrystalline silicon. Keblinski, P., Phillpot, S. R., Wolf, D., & Gleiter, H. Physics Letters A, 226(3-4):205--211, February, 1997. WOS:A1997WH58400013

Molecular-dynamics simulations were used to synthesize fully dense nanocrystalline silicon by crystallization from the melt. The equilibrium structures of the highly constrained grain boundaries and grain junctions in these metastable microstructures are found to be highly disordered and similar to the structure of amorphous silicon, These results demonstrate that in thermodynamic equilibrium nanocrystalline silicon may be treated as a two phase system composed of crystalline grain interiors that are connected by an amorphous intergranular phase.
