The mechanical properties at a record low temperature of 0.52 K on the mechanical behavior of ultrafine- and coarse-grained aluminum, as well as the mechanical response to the superconducting transition, are presented. The strain hardening behavior and the magnitude of the stress jumps associated with the superconducting transition are related to the microstructure of the material produced by severe plastic deformation.
