Nanoindentation creep test has been carried out in displacement of 4–100 nm regime at single grained (SG) Cu and ultrafine grained (UFG) Cu. The strain rate sensitivity m has been determined and exhibits strong indentation size effect. The magnitudes of m in UFG and SG Cu are comparable and can be simulated by the same curve below a critical depth. The authors experimental findings and analysis support that the tip-sample diffusion is the dominant mechanism below a critical indentation depth and the effect of grain boundary media mechanisms will emerge as the indenter penetrates deeper.

    The spatial distribution of flux pinning centers (such as defects, secondary phases, etc.) has a critical effect on the superconducting properties of YBa2Cu3O7-x (YBCO) coated conductors. To increase the flux pinning in coated conductors, impurities such as Dy can be intentionally added during...

    For decades, non-ambipolar diffusion has been observed and studied in laboratory plasmas that contain a double layer. However, self-sustained non-ambipolar plasma has yet to be demonstrated. This article reports the method and results for achieving such a condition at low pressure, with a wide...

    Micromachined Joule-Thomson coolers can be used for cooling small electronic devices. However, a critical issue for long-term operation of these microcoolers is the clogging caused by the deposition of water that is present as impurity in the working fluid. We present a model that describes the...
