Bismuth crystal twinning in thermal cycling

  • V. I. Bashmakov

It was found that thermal cycling of monocrystalline bismuth in a regime of (77 ⇌ 373°K) leads to the appearance of a network of system {110} thermal twins in the surface layer of the specimens, accompanied by a decrease in microhardness at low loading.
