In situ transmission electron microscopy tensile experiments were carried out to investigate lattice dislocation and twin boundary (TB) interaction in Cu with nanoscale growth twins. Results show that extended dislocations form inside thick twin lamellas and slip toward TBs. The extended dislocations shrink, combine, and redissociate when they pass through TBs, leaving behind detwinning partial dislocations at the TBs. The mechanism of the observed dislocation/TB interactions and the effect of the mechanism on mechanical properties are discussed.
