    • Nanoindentation of thin films: Simulations and experiments 

      Nair, A. K.; Cordill, M. J.; Farkas, Diana; Gerberich, W. W. (Cambridge University Press, 2009-03-01)
      Atomistic Simulations of nanoindentation of a 20-nm-thick Ni thin film oriented in the [111] direction were carried out to study the effects of indenter velocity and radii, interatomic potentials, and the boundary conditions ...
    • Nanotwinned fcc metals: Strengthening versus softening mechanisms 

      Stukowski, A.; Albe, K.; Farkas, Diana (American Physical Society, 2010-12-01)
      The strengthening effect of twins in nanocrystalline metals has been reported both in experiment and simulation. While twins are mostly considered as effective barriers to dislocation slip transfer, they can also provide ...
