Tungsten deformation

Tungsten deformation

The computer model (left) and experimental image reveal atomic-level deformation twinning in a tungsten nanowire under axial compression. The lattice of the deformation-induced twin band (between yellow lines) is a mirror image of that of the parent crystal. (Courtesy Ting Zhu)
