Atomistic studies are carried out to investigate the formation and evolution of defects during nanoindentation of a gold crystal. The results in this theoretical study complement the experimental investigations [ J. D. Kiely and J. E. Houston, Phys. Rev. B 57, 12 588 (1998)] extremely well. The defects are produced by a three step mechanism involving nucleation, glide, and reaction of Shockley partials on the {111} slip planes noncoplanar with the indented surface. We have observed that slip is… CONTINUE READING
