Extracting the mechanical properties of materials as small scales using ultrafast lasers

In order to accurately predict the mechanical properties of materials, it is necessary to obtain the true stress-strain curve of the material until failure. If the material is heterogeneous, more parameters are required including the true stress strain curve of all phases in the material and the strength of the interface between the various phases. This information is difficult to obtain though is it crucial for the modelling efforts.
In this project, the local mechanical properties of materials will be extracted from various materials using ultrafast laser machining combined with state of the art characterization techniques.
