The paper presents the structural and magnetic properties of a new non-magnetic biaxially textured substrate based on Ni100-xVx§ solid-solution for YBa2Cu3O7 tape fabrication. The effective atomic magnetic moment monotonously decreases with the vanadium concentration, causing a corresponding decrease of Curie temperature. The Curie temperature reaches the zero value at about U.S. % of vanadium. The texturing studies revealed that (100) cube texture can be easily developed up to x=11 at. %, by a cold rolling process followed by a recrystallization thermal treatment. The X-ray ω and φ scans have demonstrated that the samples have a good out-of-plane and in-plane texture for the whole solubility range, with FWHM of 7° and 11°, respectively. The correlation between the magnetic and structural anisotropy was also studied. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
