Statistical analyses of the first pop-in stress data, obtained by spherical tip-nanoindentation experiments on different metallic glasses (MGs) with tip radius, Ri, loading rate,P�, and structural state of the glass as experimental variables, show that the 3-parameter bimodal Weibull distribution best captures the stochastic nature of the incipient plastic strengths. Significant bimodality in the strength distributions was observed only when a larger Ri and P� are employed. We hypothesize that the stress required for shear band nucleation has to exceed a critical value over a characteristic distance over which the stress gradients are minimum to rationalize the bimodality. © 2020 Acta Materialia Inc.
