Abstract
In this research, we made use of mechanical spectroscopy to study the anela stic behaviour of nanocrystalline Fe and Ni in quasi-static, low-frequency (0.01-10 Hz) regime. The elastic energy dissipation coefficient (Q-L) and t he stress relaxation have been measured as a function of frequency and temp erature, in a range of temperatures where appreciable grain growth is not e xpected to occur. The use of such low frequency probes puts into evidence a very strong change in the material response, induced by low temperature an nealing (T < 200 degrees C). In spite of the fact that the grain size was n early the same after the annealing treatment, the as-prepared samples displ ayed much higher Q(-1) Values and faster rates of stress relaxation than th e annealed samples. The anelastic spectrum of annealed specimens has been a nalysed by a combination of quasi-static and dynamic measurements. The resu lts of this study are discussed in terms of typical activation energies rep orted for lattice and grain boundary diffusion in coarse-grained polycrysta lline and nanocrystalline metals.
