The deformation behaviour of the ζ (zeta) phase in the Fe-Zn system has been investigated via room-temperature compression tests of single-crystal micropillar specimens prepared by the focused ion beam method. Trace analysis of slip lines indicates that (110) slip occurs for the specimens investigated in the present study. Although the slip direction has not been uniquely determined, comparison of Schmid factors and yield stress values suggests that the slip direction might be <112>, which is inconsistent with the easiest slip system {110}[001] predicted on the basis of the primitive Peierls-Nabarro model.
