Creep and strain burst in indium and aluminium during nanoindentation

Nanoindentation experiments indicate that in Al, no creep takes place before a strain burst occurs, but creep occurs as soon as a strain burst appears. in indium, creep can take place before or after strain burst, and the measured stress exponents suggest diffusional creep before strain burst and di...
