A novel mechanism for the generation of device materials with very high domain boundary densities is described: we shear the sample in a computer experiment and achieve higher twin densities than in rapid quench. These domain patterns are very stable. Elastically soft materials (image with 6.4105 atoms) has greater twin densities than hard materials, even for nano-crystals.
