Whiskers were grown by the hydrogen reduction of cupric chloride. Tensile tests were performed on the whiskers, some of which were long enough to divide into two or three parts. After the whisker yielded ("primary tests") they were retested ("secondary tests") after removal of the deformed region. In order to see if length had any effect on yield stress, a normalizing proceedure was established to convert the yield stress measured at any diameter d to an equivalent whisker with d = 10 μ.
