Segregation control of doping: a (I) Schematic illustration of the segregation-driven control of doping in post-breakup semiconducting particles. Details: cross section of a Ge-rich Silicon continuous core in silica fiber a (II) and post-breakup schematic drawing of doping-segregated sphere, or Janus particle, with the Ge-rich side indicated in green a (III). b (I) Scanning Electron Microscope image in backscattered mode of the fiber, polished along its axis, showing an array of Janus particles. b (II) Detail of single Janus particle cross section. b (III) Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) map of Janus particle, indicating non-homogeneous distribution of Ge along the cross section, from overlaid maps of Si (in red) and Ge (in green). b (IV) Si-Ge equilibrium phase diagram, liquidus (solid line), and solidus (dashed line). b (V) SiGe atomic content distribution along the dashed line in b (III).
