Plasticity of Nano- and Micro-pillars

Abstract

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)
