In situ Observations of Prismatic Glide in Ti3Al


In situ straining experiments are performed in Ti3Al, in order to study the glide of 1/3 \( < 11\bar 20 > \) superdislocations in prismatic planes. Two different dislocation behaviours are observed, corresponding to two different antiphase boundaries (APBs) in two parallel prismatic planes.
