A novel superplastic deformation in an intermetallic B2-NiAl nanowire of cross-sectional dimensions of similar to 20 angstrom with failure strain as high as similar to 700% at 700 K temperature is reported. The minimum temperature under which the superplasticity has been observed is around 0.36 T-m, which is much lower than 0.5 T-m (T-m = melting temperature i.e. 1911 K for bulk B2-NiAl). Superplasticity is observed due to transformation from crystalline phase to amorphous phase after yielding of the nanowire. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
