The microstructure dependent deformation behavior of chromium, especially in terms of strain-rate sensitivity (SRS), was studied by means of improved nanoindentation methods as a function of temperature. Cr was investigated in the single crystalline (sx) and ultrafine-grained (ufg) condition. With increasing temperature a decreasing SRS was determined for sx-Cr, while for ufg-Cr a significant increase upon overcoming the critical temperature T <inf>c</inf> was measured. This is attributed to the increased importance of dislocation-grain boundary interactions, and a change in the dominating deformation behavior.
