This paper deals with the cavity formation and growth behavior of fine-grained 1420 Al-Li alloy during superplastic forming. The results indicated that there were many sub-micron cavities pre-existing at the particle-matrix interface and these sub-micron cavities grew initially under deformation. Different from uniaxial tension, the cavities nucleation under biaxial tension was combinable effect of stress concentration and matrix/particle de-cohesion. With the strain and temperature increasing, the total number and the average size of cavities increased. By the calculations, it was seen that diffusional growth process dominates the initial stage of void growth, and for void radii>~1.7μm, void growth was mainly controlled by plasticity.
