Nanolaminate composite systems have been of scientific interest due to their enhanced properties as compared to their bulk counterparts. In this talk we discuss the structure-property relationships of Al-SiC co-sputtered monolayer and multilayer materials. Magnetron sputtering was used to synthesize samples having different atomic ratios of Al and SiC. These materials exhibited extremely high hardness and strength. Microstructural characterization was done through FIB cross-sectioning and TEM imaging to study the role of the nanostructure on deformation behavior. Nanoindentation, micropillar compression and beam bending tests were performed for studying the mechanical properties. These experiments were used to advance our understanding of the dependence of mechanical properties on the atomic ratio of different components, individual layer thicknesses and size of these samples.
