Cubic FeSi, precipitates were synthesized in Si ( 100) by room-temperature Fe ion implantation followed by Si 500 keV ion beam induced epitaxial crystallization at 320 “C!. High resolution electron microscopy and Rutherford backscattering/channeling techniques show that the cubic precipitates occur in both aligned (A) and twinned (B) types with a lattice parameter very similar to that of the Si (100) matrix.
