Term (Index) Definition
grain  small piece of crystalline material in which crystallographic long range order is preserved; polycrystalline solids consists of connected grains varying in size depending on material and formation/deposition method.
grain boundary  boundary between grains in polycrystalline material; grain boundary is a discontinuity of the material structure having an effect on its fundamental properties.
polycrystalline material, poly  long-range order exists only within limited in volume grains; grains are randomly connected to form a solid; size of grains in x-y-z directions varies depending on material and method of its formation, but there is no preferential extension of the single-crystal within the grain in any direction; readily available in the bulk form, but most commonly used as a thin film; common applications in Si devices: gate contact in MOSFETs, active material in TFTs, and as a substrate for Si solar cells.
