A high purity columnar grained nickel sample with a strong <001> fiber texture was cold rolled to 50% reduction in thickness, followed by annealing at different temperatures. Optical microscopy was used to depict the grain boundaries prior to annealing and to detect nuclei formed on grain boundaries after annealing. Electron backscatter diffraction was performed to characterize the orientations of the nuclei and the deformed grains. Hardness tests were conducted at deformed grains. The potentials of triple junctions as preferential nucleation sites, the influence of deformation differences between adjacent grains on nucleation and orientation relationships between nuclei and parent matrix are analyzed.
