Imaging the Structural Evolution in Nanocrystalline Metals during Mechanical Deformation

Abstract (englisch):

Most of our current understanding of the deformation mechanisms active in nanocrystalline (nc) metals stems from in situ deformation experiments on bulk materials using x-ray diffraction (XRD). However, XRD cannot directly resolve the local deformation processes. For a local analysis, these processes are traditionally investigated using BF/DF TEM. However, varying contrast due to local orientation changes, bending and defects during in situ BF-TEM straining experiments make an accurate interpretation for nanometer sized grains difficult. On the other hand, automated crystal orientation mapping (ACOM-TEM) [1] allows to identify the crystallographic orientation of all crystallites with sizes down to around 10 nm, well below the limit of electron back scatter diffraction (EBSD). Performing ACOM-TEM in µp-STEM mode allows to image grain orientations in situ during straining inside a TEM [2, 3]. This combination was key to a new data evaluation based on orientation maps. By tracking individual crystallites through a straining series the change of their orientation can be evaluated in order to distinguish between local crystallite rotation and sample tilting/bending [2, 3]. ... mehr
