Recent results have demonstrated that ball milling may produce a partial amorphisation of a pure crystalline semiconductor such as silicon, contrary to the general belief. In a series of preliminary experiments, we show that a partial amorphisation is also observed for the GaAs crystalline compound. X-ray diffraction, differential scanning calorimetry (DSc), SEM observations and EDXISEM analyses have shown that the ball milled powder (using a planetary ball milling system) is a mixture of… Expand
