A Cobalt-20wt.% Nickel polycrystal produced by electrodeposition has been investigated in planar and cross sections using a high resolution scanning electron microscope. The local texture, grain size, amount of phase and grain boundaries, were characterized by Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD). The average grain size perpendicular to the grain growth direction was 400 nm. Parallel to it, a pronounced bimodal grain structure was observed with grains reaching more than 10 μm and grains of approximately 800 nm diameter.
