Diplom Cynthia A. Volkert Local energy dissipation during the elastic-plastic transition in metals

The goal of this project is to investigate the development of global irreversible flow (plasticity) using atomic force microscopy (AFM) during deformation of thin metal films. The first step of the project will be to build a thin-film tensile test set-up that can be used with an AFM. This apparatus will then be used to provide "proof-of-concept" experiments for measuring mechanical fluctuations in Cu thin films as the plastic yield point is approached.
