Mechanical anisotropy in crystalline saccharin: Nanoindentation studies

Mangalampalli, S.R.N. Kiran; Varughese, S; Reddy, C Malla; Ramamurty, U; Desiraju, G R


The nanoindentation technique has been employed to relate the mechanical properties of saccharin single crystals with their internal structure. Indentations were performed on (100) and (011) faces to assess the mechanical anisotropy. The load-displacement (P-h) curves indicate significant differences in the nature of the plastic deformation on the two faces. The P-h curves obtained on the (011) plane are smooth, reflecting homogeneous plasticity. However, displacement bursts (pop-ins) are...[Show more]
