Internal elastic strain, and its change accompanied with the raft formation during creep deformation in the Ni-based single crystal superalloy (TMS-26) have been investigated by X-ray diffractometry. The elastic strain caused by the lattice misfit between γ and γ' phases has markedly been changed by creep deformation especially in the directions perpendicular to the [001] tensile axis. The change in the elastic strain can be explained by the effect of creep dislocations stacked at γ/γ' interfaces. The evolution of the elastic stress field estimated from the elastic strain has explained well the transition from primary creep stage to the second one.
