Examines the change in crystallographic texture during abnormal grain growth of copper-cobalt (Cu-Co) thin films. Factor attributed to the decrease in the film's resistivity and stress; Change in texture upon annealing above 250 degree Celsius; Distinction between the cube texture and the dominant texture of annealed pure Cu.
