Abstract

Stress-induced birefringence images of diametrically compressed semiconductor disks are examined here. The experimentally observed images are compared with computer-simulated images for (100) and (111) orientation silicon disks. For a (100) oriented sample, the stress-optic coefficient C is found to depend on the position and on the orientation of the load axis with respect to the crystal principal axes. Computed values of C for the (100) orientation silicon varied from 2.0 × 10−12 to 3.0 × 10−12 cm2/dyn for a diametrically compressed disk with the load being applied at angles of 45° and 75° with respect to one of the crystal principal axes. As expected from the crystal symmetry, C was observed to be a constant for the (111) oriented silicon sample having a value of 2.33 × 10−12 cm2/dyn.
