Some observations on twin grains in as-grown iron single crystals
Review articleOpen access

AbstractThe crystallography of twin grains occurring in iron single crystal rods grown by strain-anneal method was studied in relation to the orientation of the growth axis. It was found that the main number of twin grains is arranged into longitudinal arrays which occur on those places of the surface to which {111} planes are tangent or approximately tangent. Twin grains in a certain array belong to certain twinning directions, and they are frequently bounded by two {112} twinning planes. It seems that the origin of twins is connected with processes occurring at the growth interface.
