Title: Probing elastically or plastically induced structural heterogeneities in bulk metallic glasses by nanoindentation pop-in tests

Shear banding dynamics in bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) is manifested by the spatiotemporal evolution of strain fields which in turn depend on structural heterogeneities. The spacing of these heterogeneities, as a characteristic length scale, was determined from the analysis of nanoindentation pop-in tests using a stochastic model. Furthermore, the pre-stress by elastic bending and residual stress by plastic bending of BMG plates were found to dramatically decrease such spacings, thus increasing heterogeneity density and mechanically rejuvenating the glass structure.
