The grain boundary network of nanocrystalline Cu foils was modified by the systematic application of cyclic loadings and elevated temperatures having a range of magnitudes. Most broadly, the changes to the boundary network were directly correlated to the applied temperature and accumulated strain, including a 300% increase in the twin length fraction. By independently varying each treatment variable, a matrix of grain boundary statistics was built to check the plausibility of hypothesized… Expand
