THE β-constituent of the copper-zinc alloy system containing about 48–50 per cent zinc and having a cubic body-centred crystal lattice, does not readily show slip-bands when the crystals are distorted1. On the other hand, structures resembling twins have been described2, v. Göler and Sachs3 found slip-bands on some crystals only and identified them approximately with traces of dodecahedral planes {110}. I have recently confirmed the occurrence of slip-bands agreeing with the traces of {110…
