Abstract: In order to obtain a sharply cube textured silver sheet as the substrate for high temperature superconductor (HTS) film with high Jc (critical current density), warm rolling combined with two step annealing treatment has been performed to clarify the perspective of texture formation in pure silver. Two kinds of starting material, which are silver ingots of commercial purity obtained by casting in air and vacuum, were used to examine the effect of oxygen on texture development. The main feature of warm rolling texture obtained in this study was a strong Brass {011}<211> component with minor S {123}<412> component, and in some cases, cube {001}<100> component or Copper {112}<111> component appeared also depending on the warm rolling procedures. Upon crystallization, {001}<100>, {124}<4,12,7> and {13,6,15}<365> orientations were formed as the dominant components in silver sheets and the relative amount of their orientation components depended on the concrete annealing conditions applied and on the oxygen content. A very sharp single-crystal like cube texture has been successfully realized in the specimen, which was cast in vacuum, warm rolled by 95 percent and subsequently annealed as 1500C×10 min-5000C×30 min in nitrogen. Finally, we discussed the technological basis on sharp cube texture formation in f.c.c. pure metals with low stacking fault energy.

Abstract: In the current study the nucleation of Cube grains during recrystallization in a commercial Al-Fe-Si alloy was investigated by in-situ and ex-situ annealing experiments at different temperatures. Both methods confirm that the Cube grains can be nucleated during RX both at large deformed Cube bands and other locations. During annealing only about one third of the Cube nuclei from these other locations developed into Cube oriented recrystallized grains owing to an unfavorable growth environment. Such nuclei needed also a longer incubation time due to their small size compared to nuclei formed at large Cube bands which can form nuclei very fast owing to the well-developed substructure and transition zones promoting nucleation. The growth rate of all Cube nuclei was found to be strongly influenced by their environment. This effect became more pronounced with decreasing annealing temperature due to an increasing amount of recovery.

Abstract: The recrystallization behavior and texture development in copper accumulative roll-bonding (ARB) processed by various cycles (2, 4 and 6 cycle) were studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) analysis and SEM/EBSP method. The exothermic peaks caused by recrystallization appeared at 210 ~ 253 􀍠 in each sample. The peak positions shifted to lower temperature as the number of ARB cycles increased. This result indicated that the evolution of finer microstructure with increasing number of the ARB cycles enhanced the occurrence of recrystallization at lower temperature. The stored energy calculated from the DSC curve of the ARB processed copper increased with the increasing strains. During an annealing, the preferential growth of cube-oriented grains ({100}<001>) occurred in each sample. The recystallization behavior of ARB processed copper having low stacking fault energies was distinguished from that of so-called “recovery type” materials, i.e. aluminum and low carbon steels, which shows rather continuous changes in microstructure during annealing. The accumulated strains provided the driving force for the preferential growth, which was the same mechanism as the preferential growth in normally rolled copper. The sharpest cube texture developed in ARB processed copper by 4 cycles. The difference of cube texture development between 2 cycles and 4 cycles was caused by the distribution of cube-oriented regions which corresponded to the nucleation sites of recrystallized grains before annealing. More nanocystalline layers in the vicinity of bonded interfaces were distributed in ARB processed copper by 6 cycles than 4cycles. The nanocystalline structure could grow faster than the cube-oriented grains and led to the inhibition of sharp cube texture in the ARB processed copper by 6 cycles.

Abstract: Copper foils cold rolled up to 92% reduction exhibited a low intensity of the β-fiber texture and a high intensity of the cube and RD (rolling direction)-rotated cube components. After annealing, the recrystallization texture of the foils could be characterized by the mixture of the cube and the S components. An initial strong cube texture with a large grain size might remain a less developed rolling texture component, cube or RD-rotated cube, which would be the source of the S component in the recrystallization texture.

Abstract: The present work investigates texture evolution stages in vacuum-degassed non-oriented electrical steels. The main idea behind the improvement of soft magnetic properties relies on deformation induced grain growth phenomena and heat transport phenomena promoting the preferable formation of columnar grains with so called cube crystallographic orientation {100}<0vw>. In order to achieve the desired orientation with appropriate microstructure state from magnetic properties point of view, we have used an adjusted temper rolling process at elevated temperature and subsequent dynamical annealing in laboratory conditions.

Abstract: The migration rates of C->Si, Si->C, and Si->Sj were assumed to be high and those of Si->Si and all other rates to be low. Here Si(i=1,2,3,4) is a variant of S orientation and C->Si means the growth of a cube grain into an Si grain. The textural development through grain coarsening was simulated as a function of the ratio of the high rate to the low one. The compromising effect surely promotes the development of the cube texture but its decisive development requires any asymmetry between C->Si and Si->C migration processes.
