heterogeneous deformation of Cu2O single crystals during high temperature compression creep

  • T. Bretheau
  • C. Dolin


Single crystals of Cu2O in parallelopipedic and cubic geometries have been deformed in high temperature creep. Depending on the compression axis, either 2 or 4 glide planes are observed. Local strain analysis performed by a visioplasticity method permits an estimation of the heterogeneity of deformation and shows clearly the imperfection of the compression test.
