Plasticity of Nano- and Micro-pillars


We review unique mechanisms of plastic deformation in nanoand micropillars. At the nanoscale, it is shown that plastic deformation is asymmetric with respect to direction of mechanical loading, as a result of specific relationships between the normal and resolved shear stress on active slip planes. This is attributed to the dependence of shear wave speed on… (More)
