Zn1−x Si x O polycrystalline powders with 0 ≤ x ≤ 0.12 were prepared by sol–gel method. Structural properties reveal single phase wurtzite structure for x ≤ 0.03 beyond which structural complexities arise. Micro hardness decreases with increase in Si content. Micro-hardness test reveals Indentation Size Effect. The experimental results were analysed using the Meyer’s law, Proportional Specimen Resistance (PSR), Elastic/Plastic Deformation (EPD) models and Hays-Kendall approach. The Indentation Size Effect was also observed.
