The temperature dependencies of the yield strength, strainrate sensitivity of deformation stress and activation volume of plastic deformation process have been founded in the nanocrystalline titanium VT1-0 at quasi-static deformation tension in the temperature interval 4.2–395 K. The thermoactivation analysis of experimental results was performed. It is shown that the low-temperature plasticity of the nanocrystalline titanium is controlled by thermally activated dislocation overcoming of the local barriers produced by impurity interstitial atoms (oxygen, nitrogen). The empirical values of the dislocation-impurity interaction theoretical parameters were found.

Key words: nanocrystalline titanium VT1-0, thermoactivation analysis.
