Based on the recent experimental results achieved in the present authors' group,this paper presents a review on the evaluation methods and some measurement results of the ductility and fatigue lifetime of metal films.Measurements on mesoscale Cu films have been performed and the size-dependent mechanical properties,including yield strength,the critical strain for microcrack nucleation,and related fatigue lifetime,have been clearly revealed.The relationship between the quasi-static mechanical… CONTINUE READING
