Time-dependent deformation processes during nanoindentation have been investigated on a Pd40 Cu30 Ni10 P20 bulk metallic glass. Deformation under constant load has been studied as a function of prior loading rate and temperature. The constant-load displacement of the indenter into the sample shows classic relaxation kinetics and reveals the importance of anelasticity for the mechanical behavior of metallic glasses at the nanoscale. © 2006 American Institute of Physics.
