    It is difficult to obtain a sharp cube texture in the Ni-9.3at.% W substrate used for coated conductors due to its low stacking fault energy. In this paper, the traditional cold rolling procedure was optimized by introducing an intermediate recovery annealing. The deformation texture has been improved after three recovery annealing cycles at 500$^{\circ}{\rm C}$ for 2 h during the cold rolling process. After optimized recrystallization annealing, a Ni-9.3at.% substrate with a cube texture content of 87.7% $( has been obtained. The effect of the intermediate annealing on cube texture formation is attributed to the improved deformation texture and to the enhanced pre-existing cube oriented structure in the deformed matrix.
