This is the first in a series of lectures for a microstructures short course. These illustrated lecture notes introduce the topic of microstructures and discuss a variety of deformation mechanisms and processes. Some topics include point defects, dislocations, kinking, twinning, grain boundary sliding, and deformation mechanism maps and rheology. The notes also include links to further references.
