Park et al. measured the deposition and annealing textures of nanocrystalline Ni and Ni- 20 % Fe electrodeposits. They found that the deposition texture of major <100> + minor <111> changed to the texture characterized by major <111> + minor <100> after annealing. They also found that the lattice constants of the <100> oriented grains in the as-deposited state were larger than those of <111> oriented grains. In this paper, a model has been advanced to explain the unusual results of lattice constants, and the texture transition has been discussed.
