poisson ratio for Nickel using EAM

Dear Lammps users,

I am doing a simple test of uniaxial loading on single crystal nickel to measure the poisson ratio for one EAM potential of nickel

I could not get the suggested result of 0.30 from https://sites.google.com/a/gmu.edu/eam-potential-database/Ni.
what I am getting is poisson ratio start from 0.4 and gradually changing with higher tension strain applied.

The way I am doing it is using fix_deform + npt (pressure on directions perpendicular to loading is controlled to be 1 atm), input file is as follows, I appreciate if anyone could give me suggestions how to do it.

Maybe Jon Zimmerman has an idea (CCd).
