Nanocrystal density, NN probability, and NN density. The 2D nanocrystal (NC) density (a), the probability of finding a nearest neighbor (NN) within 2 nm (b), and the density of nanocrystals with a NN within 2 nm (c) as a function of the silicon-rich layer composition and crystallinity for a sample with silicon-rich and buffer layer thicknesses of 3 and 1 nm, respectively. The black diamonds represent tube furnace annealed intrinsic samples. The red, magenta, and blue squares show intrinsic, p-type and n-type samples annealed using RTA
