Kink formation around indents in laminated Ti3SiC2 thin films studied in the nanoscale
2003 (English)In: Scripta Materialia, ISSN 1359-6462, E-ISSN 1872-8456, Vol. 49, no 2, 155-160 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The deformation mechanisms in ductile Ti3SiC2(0 0 0 1) single-crystal films have been analysed by nanoindentation and cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy. Permanent deformation includes formation of kink bands, as the nanolaminated material buckles out at the perimeter of the contact area, and delamination cracks. Evidence is presented for incipient kink-band formation.
