Contradictory results have been concluded from transmission electron microscopy studies of disorientations evolving during plastic deformation: whereas saturation of the average disorientation angles across all dislocation boundaries was reported, a continued increase was observed, if different boundary types were distinguished. The apparent saturation is traced to a nontrivial artifact of the evaluation procedure. (c) 2005 Acta Materialia Inc. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
