Great illustration of slip vs twinning. I wasn’t going to look any deeper but I wanted to hear the “tin cry” of twinning. So slip is when metal for example (any crystal) is smoothly plastic bendable. Makes no noise. twinning makes noise – tin cry. The atoms generate a sound wave as they’re suddenly moved. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rWIHR4pB9s
