Mechanical properties of small scale BCC metal structures

Andreas Simon Schneider
Metals with a critical dimension in the micro- and nanometer regime have demonstrated a dramatic increase in strength with decreasing sample size termed the ‘size effect’. Understanding and quantifying mechanical behavior is an essential part of creating small-scale systems with advanced properties, and is possible using highly developed experimental testing techniques such as compression of small-scale metal pillars formed using focused ion beam (FIB) machining. Although the fundamental mechanisms which govern the size effect are...
