Figures

Grahic Jump Location
MD simulation snapshots showing the interaction between a moving, dissociated edge dislocation and an overlapping, truncated SFT in Cu. The high potential energy atoms are visualized in 〈111〉 (top) and 〈110〉 (bottom) projections and show the motion of the two Shockley partials and interaction with the overlapping, truncated SFT at (a) 0, (b) 11.0, (c) 16.0, and (d) 19.0 ps after application of a 300 MPa shear stress. See text for additional details.
Grahic Jump Location
Near [1̄11] projection of MD simulation snapshots showing the interaction between a moving, dissociated edge dislocation and an SFT which lies across the dislocation glide plane, as visualized by plotting atoms with high potential energy. Dislocation positions are shown at (a) 10.0 ps, (b) 19.5 ps, (c) 23.3 ps, and (d) 115.0 ps after applying a 300 MPa shear stress. Note, the edge dislocation has passed through the SFT six times, shearing the top portion of the SFT away from its truncated tetrahedron base.
Grahic Jump Location
[1̄11] projection of MD simulation snapshots showing the interaction between a moving, dissociated edge dislocation and an SFT, whose base lies just above the dislocation glide plane, as visualized by plotting atoms with high potential energy. Dislocation positions are shown at (a) 0.0 ps, (b) 9.0 ps, (c) 11.0 ps, (d) 14.0 ps, (e) 15.5 ps, and (f) 18.5 ps after applying a 300 MPa shear stress. Note, the use of high potential energy atoms for visualization introduces thermal noise (isolated points) into the snapshots.

Grahic Jump Location
Near [1̄11] projection of MD simulation snapshots showing the motion of an isolated edge dislocation. The dislocation is visualized by plotting atoms with high potential energy. Dislocation positions are shown at (a) 0.0 ps, (b) 7.0 ps, (c) 15.0 ps, and (d) 20.5 ps after applying a 300 MPa shear stress.
