Transmission electron microscopy is used to reveal the formation of localized deformation channels on a nanoscale in 30Kh2N2MFA steel subjected to compressive deformation of 40% or more. The channels are found to be located mainly along the interfaces of neighboring bainite lamellae or along grain boundaries. The structure of the deformation channels, their sizes, and the change in their volume fraction with the strain are analyzed.
