In Situ Electron Backscatter Diffraction Analysis for Microstructure Evolution and Deformation Models of Mg–Ce Alloy During Uniaxial Loading

Previous studies showed that significant increases in elongation in Mg–Ce alloys due to the Ce addition and the solute drag effect by Ce addition were ascribed to the non-basal dislocation slip activating and the texture altering. The microstructure evolution and deformation models of extruded Mg-0.5 wt%Ce alloy rods under uniaxial tension have been studied using in situ electron backscatter diffraction. The basal and non-basal slips were characterized by using slip line trace analysis. The results provide evidence for that pyramidal slip activated during deformation, besides basal slip and extension twinning, which contributes to the texture weakening and ductility increasing in Mg-0.5 wt%Ce alloy.
