The texture development in Al-2.3%Li during cold rolling, cross rolling and subsequent recrystallization annealing is investigated by means of X-ray pole figures and ODF analysis. The results are discussed in terms of Taylor-type deformation models and of nucleation and growth models for recrystallization.
