The movement of dislocations in aluminium foils

A short black and white silent film showing the movement of dislocation in aluminium foils under a microscope.

This short black and white silent film shows the movement of dislocation in aluminium foils under a microscope. Possibly created as an early teaching aid, it shows subgrains, dislocations and irregular motion within the structure of aluminium foils.

Created by PB Hirsch, RW Horne and MJ Whelan in the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge.
