The configuration of dislocation wall structures and the interactions between dislocations and dislocation walls play a significant role in the understanding of deformation processes in metals. Samples of single-crystal aluminum deformed by tensile-straining (15%) were analyzed using TEM. In tensile-deformed (15%) single crystal aluminum, a cell structure is well developed and dislocations in the cell boundaries consist of either one set of Burgers vector or two sets of Burgers vector. The three-dimensional image of cell wall structure, misorientation angle across the cell boundaries and the Burgers vectors of dislocations in the cell boundaries are characterized.
