A new technique of nano-scale mechanical characterization is applied to reveal the elementally step of deformation behavior. We target metals and try to understand the effects of lattice defects such as dislocations, grain boundaries, solute elements and second phase inclusions to the mechanical properties. We are going for establishing a new guide principle of materials design through the interpretation of the relationship between the microstructures and the mechanical properties.
