The high-temperature creep-deformation behavior of a Ni-based M963 superalloy has been investigated over a broad stress range of 80 to 600 MPa at high temperatures (800 °C to 975 °C). The detailed dislocation configurations at different creep stages are examined through transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results show that the deformation mechanism is stress and temperature dependent and mainly consists of three dislocation-controlling mechanisms: stacking faults and dislocation-pair shearing, dislocation bowing and Orowan looping, and dislocation climb.
