A method for preparing twist-type silicon bicrystals is reported. Small silicon platelets of (100) orientation can be bonded with (100) silicon substrates. The morphology of the platelets and transmission electron microscope (TEM) images of the bicrystals are shown. The potential of research using these bicrystals is discussed.
