Studied was the structure of large tungsten billet, produced by the method of additive plasma-induction layer-by-layer growing on monocrystalline primer at different speeds of the process (17…70 mm/min) The investigations ( of microhardness, sizes of subgrained structure, angles of subgraines disorientation, nature of distribution of dislocations, etc.) were carried out at all the structural levels by using a complex of experimental methods of modern physical materials science, including light, scanning and transmission microdiffraction electron microscopy. It is shown that the ingot represents a monocrystalline body with a crystallographic orientation, preset by the priming crystal, The increase in rate of growing up to 70 mm/min leads to a negligible decrease in microhardness, refining of structure at the uniform distribution of density of dislocations that allows producing tungsten single crystals with a perfect monocrystalline structure (with low-angle boundaries) at angles of disorientation, not exceeding 3о. Ref. 12, Tabl. 3, Fig. 7.
Key words: tungsten; plasma-induction growing; single-crystal ingot; structure; disorientation of subgrains; density of dislocations
