In-situ TEM compression testing is able to probe quantitatively the mechanical response of materials with simultaneous imaging of the deformation microstructure evolution. Ti-6Al-4V (Ti64), known for high strength, is the most widely used Ti alloy. A better understanding of the plastic deformation micro-mechanisms is sought using in-situ TEM studies. This project investigates the dislocation characterization of bulk Ti64 and the dislocation activities in micro-pillars during in-situ TEM compression.
