Abstract The enhanced properties of grain boundary engineered metals are a result of their unique microstructures, which contain large clusters of twinned grains, called twin related domains. These large twin related domains in grain boundary engineered Ni were found to form through recrystallization. Orientation mapping showed that sparse nucleation and multiple twinning resulted in twin related domains containing hundreds of grains connected together in complex morphologies. A correlation was… Expand
