Although there have been significant progresses in the development of high performance Mg alloys in recent years, the intrinsic effect of alloying elements on deformation behavior of Mg alloys is not clearly understood yet. The present work is aimed at having a better understanding of the effect of alloying elements on deformation behavior of Mg alloys. Among various elements utilized in Mg alloys, four representative alloying elements have been chosen; Al and Zn that are most commonly used alloying elements, Sn that is known to increase ductility and promote significant precipitation hardening, and Y that represents rare earth elements used in numerous Mg alloys. The binary alloys containing these elements have been processed to have the similar grain size. Their deformation behavior has been analyzed by TEM, EBSD and neutron diffraction and compared with the VPSC simulation analysis to identify the role of each alloying element in the deformation behavior.
