Deformation behavior of binary stoichiometric Ti5Si3 single crystals was examined as a function of the loading axis orientation and temperature. Two different types of deformation modes, namely {1100} [0001] prism slip, {2112}1/3<2113> pyramidal slip were newly identified to be activated above 1300 °C depending on the loading axis orientation. Critical resolved shear stresses (CRSS) for the {1100} [0001] prism slip and {2112}1/3<2113> pyramidal slip were estimated to be about 130 MPa and 330 MPa at 1400 °C, respectively. The values of the CRSS for these two slip systems decrease monotonously with increasing the temperature.
