Multiscale Dislocation Dynamics Analyses of Laser Shock Peening in Silicon Single Crystal

Although laser shock peening (LSP) has been applied in metals for property enhancement for a long time, its application on brittle materials has not been investigated so far. The present work is the first computational attempt to show that strong dislocation activity can be generated in silicon crys...
