Temperature dependence of vickers microhardness and creep of InBi single crystals

  • V P Bhatt
  • C F Desai


Variation of Vickers microhardness of InBi single crystals with temperature has been studied. Loading time dependence of the microhardness at different temperatures has been used for the creep study in the temperature range 30° – 85°C. The activation energy for creep has been evaluated and the results are discussed.
