In order to investigate the texture development in cold rolled and annealed tantalum (Ta), the present study was carried out. For this work, cold rolling was performed up to ~ 96% reduction in thickness, and annealing was performed at elevated temperature up to ~ 1200 °C for 60 min under the high vacuum to prevent the surface oxidation. As a result, increase in the reduction ratio of the cold rolled Ta was effective to develop the a fibre texture, with its texture components such as (001)<110> and (112)<110>. Also, resulting grain size was more refined by increase in reduction ratio, consequently, 96% cold rolled and annealed material showed the best refined grain size. However, in case of annealed material, g fibre texture with its texture component, such as (111)<121> and (111)<112>, was developed by increase in annealing temperature. In this study, we systematically discussed the texture development due to the increase in reduction ratio.
