Title: An electron microscopy study of dislocation structures in Mg single crystals compressed along [0 0 0 1] at room temperature

We compressed Mg single crystals along [0 0 0 1] at room temperature to various stress levels (40, 80, 120, 160 and 320 MPa) and the evolution of dislocation structure with stress increment was investigated by TEM slip is confirmed to be the dominant deformation mode; the predominance of edge dislocation debris lying along the <1 0 $$\bar{1}$$ 0> implies that screw dislocations are more mobile than their edge counterpart. The edge dislocation may dissociate into and dislocations, and the latter can extend further on the basal plane and bound a basal-stacking fault.
