1. Worked with Haitham El Kadiri on Mg single crystal results. The objective is to understand the twin boundary interaction with c+a dislocation from the TEM, EBSD and DIC results. As a last experimental part of this work, I am planning to go to Drexel next week to perform a uniaxial c axis compression up to 0.5% strain. The goal is to understand if basal cross-slip onto non-basal planes is likely to occur before activation of c+a slip.
2. Worked on KTs review on Mg single crystal work. The paper will be ready by tomorrow.
