La2Zr2O7 (LZO) film grown by the chemical solution deposition (CSD) technique is a widely studied buffer layer for YBa2Cu3O7-x film growth on a rolling-assisted biaxially textured (RABiT) substrate. A biaxially textured LZO film is epitaxially grown on a cube-textured metal substrate. In a RABiT substrate, cube texture is obtained as primary recrystallization of heavily cold-rolled fcc metals and is normally developed before CSD film deposition to obtain an oriented film growth. In this paper, we show that a biaxially textured LZO film can be grown by depositing the precursor solution directly on a cold-rolled fcc metal substrate and performing a single heat treatment. In fact, we show that if the recrystallization temperature of the metallic substrate is lower than the nucleation temperature of the film, a biaxially textured film is obtained as a result of transient cube texture transfer. Biaxially textured LZO films grown on cold-rolled substrates are compared with films grown on recrystallized substrates. In particular, the growth of LZO on either pure-Cu- or Ni-based substrate was studied. Compared with the LZO film grown on a cube-textured substrate, LZO grown on a cold-rolled substrate shows similar structural properties and morphology. Moreover, films are well adherent without cracks or delamination, suggesting that grain boundary migration in the metallic substrate has no detrimental influence on the film. In some cases, secondary recrystallization of the substrate occurs, without affecting the quality of the LZO film. © 2016 IEEE.
