Title

Twin Intersection Mechanisms in Nanocrystalline Fcc Metals

Abstract

Deformation twins have been reported to produce high strength and ductility. Intersections of deformation twins may affect the microstructural evolution during plastic deformation and consequently influence mechanical properties. However, the mechanisms governing twin-intersection behavior remain poorly understood. In this study, we investigated twin intersection mechanisms by observing twin transmission across the boundary of another twin using high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. Based on the experimental observations, mechanisms were proposed for twin-twin intersections and associated dislocation reactions in nanocrystalline fcc materials.
