Abstract
  • We perform two-dimensional linear elastic finite element analysis to investigate the mechanical stability of ultrathin Ge/Si film grown on or bonded to SiO₂, using imperfect interface elements between Si and SiO₂ to model Si/SiO₂ interfacial slippage. We demonstrate that the overall composite film is stable when only the tangential slippage is allowed, however, it becomes unstable when normal slippage is allowed: the coherently strained Ge island induces a large local bending of Si layer, and separates the Si layer from the underlying SiO₂ forming a void at the Si/SiO₂ interface.
