Texture Development in Cold Rolled and Annealed Ta
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.
