Abstract

We present uniaxial tensile test results for 30-50 nm thick freestanding aluminum films. Young's modulus and ductility were found to decrease monotonically with grain size. Reverse Hall-Petch behavior was observed with no appreciable room temperature creep. Non-linear elasticity with small irreversible deformation was observed for 50 nm thick specimens.
