It has been known that twin boundaries dominate the plasticity of nanotwinned metals. However, the role of stacking faults on the deformation mechanisms in face-centered-cubic (FCC) metals is less understood. Here we investigate the deformation mechanisms in FCC Co with high-density stacking faults by way of in situ micropillar compression and atomistic simulations. In situ compression tests show strain softening and hardening at different strain rates. Molecular dynamics simulations reveal that the preexisting stacking faults and partial dislocation nucleation dominate the plastic deformation of FCC Co. Abundant dislocation junctions form at high strain rate, leading to strengthening and work hardening.
