"Laue back reflection patterns were used along with visual examination in evaluating the characteristics of the annealed structure of high purity (99.99%) aluminum single crystals which had been deformed by elongation. It was found that the glide strain and annealing temperature are primary factors to be considered with respect to the structural changes occurring during annealing.
It was determined that the glide strain must be above a certain critical value to cause recrystallization; below the critical value polygonization will predominate in the annealed structure regardless of the annealing temperature.
The single crystals used in the investigation were grown by the strain anneal method and the optimum strain required to grow large single crystals was determined.
A method of sectioning single crystals without introducing localized strain in the region of the cut was developed"--Abstract, page ii.
