This study describes the effect of microstructural development on high tensile properties of a newly developed He/H2 milled oxide dispersion strengthened copper in a large centimeter sized spherical morphology. Electron back scattered diffraction showed development of a strong texture of (110) plane in micron sized (1.2 μm) grains on the surface of milled spheres. A combination of microstructural features of inhomogeneous grain size, nanoscale lenticular/rectangular deformation twins, high dislocation density and fine oxide particles distribution induced a very high ultimate tensile strength (688 MPa)-ductility (8.6% elongation).
