Nearest-neighbor distance probability density functions. The nearest-neighbor distance probability density functions for samples with silicon-rich layer thicknesses of 1.5, 2, and 3 nm and buffer layer thickness of 1 nm, calculated using their respective optimal compositions. The gray area depicts the range of desired nearest-neighbor distances. Shorter distances imply clustering, and greater distances lead to an insufficient tunneling probability
