Phase-specific nano-indentation results: (a) SEM image showing indentations on bright crystalline dendrite and dark amorphous matrix and (b) load versus displacement curves obtained on the respective phases; (c) SEM image of scratch test performed on crystalline dendrite and (d) the corresponding coefficient of friction; (e) Scratch on both crystalline and amorphous phases and (f) the corresponding coefficient of friction for both phases. The friction coefficient was higher for the amorphous matrix and had a saw-tooth type profile compared to a smooth/uniform value for the crystalline dendrite.
