as shear bands, kink bands result in large but limited local deformation, do not cause microstructural damage, and may even provide a beneficial mechanical re- sponse. Kink band formation allows for very large deformations at a constant stress, with neither a load drop nor an increase in engineering stress that would occur during homogenous deforma- tion [7] . Therefore, kink bands may prove beneficial for the design of energy ab- sorbing structures where large strain de- formation at a constant reaction force is a highly desirable mechanical response. SUMMARY Cu-Nb nanolaminates can be pro- duced in bulk form using the industry scalable ARB process. These materials display high strengths (>1 GPa) and show a strong propensity for kink band forma- tion during layer parallel compression. The combination of microstructural stability, high strength, and unusual de- formation behavior make metallic nano- laminates intriguing candidate materials for structural applications. ~AM&P For more information: Thomas Nizolek is a Ph.D. student at University of Califor- nia, Santa Barbara, tnizolek@engr.ucsb. edu, This article has been adapted from a full length feature in Metallography, Microstruc- ture, and Analysis 3.6 (2014): 470-476, DOI 10.1007/s13632-014-0172-2. © Spring- er Science+Business Media New York and ASM International 2014.
