Elastic and plastic properties of Mo3Si measured by nanoindentation

Swadener, J.G., Rosales, Isa and Schneibel, Joachim H. (2001). Elastic and plastic properties of Mo3Si measured by nanoindentation. Materials Research Society Symposium Proceedings, 646 , N421-N426.


Single crystal Mo3Si specimens were grown and tested at room temperature using established nanoindentation techniques at various crystallographic orientations. The indentation modulus and hardness were obtained for loads that were large enough to determine bulk properties, yet small enough to avoid cracking in the specimens. From the indentation modulus results, anisotropic elastic constants were determined. As load was initially increased to approximately 1.5 mN, the hardness exhibited a sudden drop that corresponded to a jump in displacement. The resolved shear stress that was determined from initial yielding was 10-15% of the shear modulus, but 3 to 4 times the value obtained from the bulk hardness. Non-contact atomic force microscopy images in the vicinity of indents revealed features consistent with {100}(010) slip.
