The low-temperature plastic yield of a -Fe single crystals is known to display a strong temperature dependence and to be controlled by the thermally activated motion of screw dislocations. In this paper, we present molecular dynamics simulations of 1 2 111{112} screw dislocation motion as a function of temperature and stress in order to extract mob…

In the traditional picture of plasticity in bcc metals, edge dislocations have been assumed to play a minor role due to their high mobility with respect to screw dislocations, which then control plastic flow. 1 2 111{110} edge dislocations indeed fit this description, as it has been shown by way of numerous atomistic simulations. However, 1 2 111{1…
