Stress relaxation in nanocrystalline nickel within the temperature range 523–673 K in a uniaxial compression regime is studied in the present investigation. The results obtained for coarser grained nickel are given for comparison. An average strain rate of nanocrystalline nickel within the investigated range of temperatures is 1.75 × 10−5–3.03 × 10−5s−1. The presence of two types of stress relaxation dependencies are shown. The most likely strain mechanism is grain boundary sliding controlled by grain boundary diffusion for temperatures between 623 and 673 K.
