From: Dislocation Multiplications in Extremely Small Hexagonal-structured Titanium Nanopillars Without Dislocation Starvation

Figure 3

(A) TEM images from the movie of a micro-pillar compression test as the loading direction was 10 degrees off [\(0001\)] on a ~150nm-sized single-crystal Ti pillar, showing the process of dislocation multiplication with a dominant dislocation acted as a typical Frank-Read source. The zone axis was along [\(01\bar{1}0\)], the insect shows the electron diffraction pattern. (B) True Stress-Displacement curve of the quantitative in situ TEM nano-mechanical test. Continuous plastic flow and high strength was observed.
