Lattice preferred orientation and stress in polycrystalline hcp-Co plastically deformed under high pressure
S. Merkel, N. Miyajima, D. Antonangeli, G. Fiquet and T. Yagi
The results of x-ray diffraction data of a polycrystal under nonhydrostatic compression are analyzed for lattice preferred orientation and stress using lattice strain theories with an application to hcp-Co deformed up to 42.6 GPa in the diamond anvil cell. We obtain a pure  fiber texture that develops primarily between 0 and 15 GPa. We also show that for hcp metals the hypothesis of uniform stress across grains and lattice planes cannot be applied. This implies that the effective single crystal elastic moduli deduced from x-ray diffraction under Reuss or geometric averages consistently differ from those measured with other techniques, even after including effects of lattice preferred orientations. These results can be interpreted as an (hkl)-dependent effective differential stress resulting from plastic deformation.
