Magnetically Controlled Recrystallization Texture in Titanium
The annealing of cold rolled (82%) titanium sheet at 750°C in a magnetic field of 19.4 Tesla results in a distinct difference between texture peaks when the sample is tilted by +30° or -30° to the field direction around the rolling direction, i.e. c (<0001>)-axis of grains corresponding to one texture component is aligned normal to the field direction. This result is attributed to grain growth affected by an additional driving force arising in a magnetic field by the anisotropy of the magnetic susceptibility of titanium.
