We report experimental observation of a deformation mechanism in nanocrystalline face-centered-cubic Al, partial dislocation emission from grain boundaries, which consequently resulted in deformation stacking faults (SFs) and twinning. These results are surprising because (1) partial dislocation emission from grain boundaries has not been experimentally observed although it has been predicted by simulations and (2) deformation stacking faults and twinning have not been reported in Al due to its high SF energy.
