Indentation size effects in single crystal copper as revealed by synchrotron x-ray microdiffraction.

For a Cu single crystal, we find that indentation hardness increases with decreasing indentation depth, a phenomenon widely observed before and called the indentation size effect ISE. To understand the underlying mechanism, we measure the lattice rotations in indentations of different sizes using wh...
