The aim of the present work was to reveal the structure characteristics of Al/Ti layered structures. For this purpose, conventional (CTEM), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and standard X-ray diffractometer measurements have been applied. The layered Al films exhibit an ultrasharp 〈111〉 texture. The 〈111〉 pole density of the films increases linearly with increasing number of Al/Ti layer pairs. The Al layers contain grains oriented in the 〈111〉 crystalline direction only. The texture sharpness in the single Al films decreases with increasing thickness of the Ti underlayer.
