In body-centered-cubic (bcc) crystals, 1/2{111} screw dislocations exhibit high intrinsic lattice friction as a consequence of their nonplanar core structure, which results in a periodic energy landscape known as the Peierls potential UP. The main features determining plastic flow, including its stress and temperature dependences, can be derived di…
