The microstructural features and mechanical properties of a Mg-Gd binary alloy subjected to various passes of accumulative roll bonding (ARB) processing were investigated in this study. Under accumulative plastic deformation, the original coarse grains were gradually refined down into ultra-fine grains (UFGs), which is accompanied by significant increase in tensile strength at the expense of elongation. The changes in mechanical properties were closely related to grain refinement and other changes in the microstructure such as stacking faults, deformation twins, high angle grain boundaries and low angle dislocation boundaries. In particular, the solute clusters and nanosized precipitates were also proved to play important roles in strengthening of this alloy.
