Texture Evolution in Ni Substrate Prepared by Powder Metallurgy and Casting Methods

Abstract:

Article Preview

Cube textured Ni substrate were fabricated for YBCO coated conductors from the initial specimens prepared by powder metallurgy (P/M) and casting and the effects of annealing temperature and reduction ratio on texture formation and microstructural evolutio were evaluated. The initial specimens were rolled by 98.6% and 99.2% reduction ratio and then annealed in the temperature range of 600°C to 1200°C. The microstructure and texture were evaluated by optical microscopy and X-ray pole-figure analysis. We observed that microstructure of the initial specimen varied with preparation methods.Texture analysis indicated that a strong cube texture formed for substrate made by P/M, and the degree of texture did not significantly vary with annealing temperature of 600°C~1100°C. On the other hand, the texture of substrate made by casting was more dependent on the annealing temperature and twin texture ({221}<221>) and several minor texture components started to form at 1000°C. In addition, the texture of substrate made by P/M was significantly dependent on the reduction ratio.
