Dislocation velocity measurements at room temperature on molybdenum single crystals by the etch-pitting method are described. It is shown that the stress dependence of the dislocation velocity obeys the relationship v tantan sub o to the mth power with m about 6.4 and tan sub o about 5.5 Kg mm to the minus 2nd power. It is also shown that this relationship can be derived directly from thermal activation theory and that the results support the thermally activated overcoming of the Peierls hills as the rate controlling process in the plastic deformation of molybdenum.
