Plan-View TEM of the MgB2 film consisting of MgB2 and MgO.

The dark-field technique highlights isolated ~10 nm grains. MgB2 Ring absences and the distribution of intensity within the rings in selected area diffraction patterns (SADPs) reveal the [0001] fiber texture.

(b) with the beam approximately parallel to the film surface normal and
(c) tilted substantially away from the surface normal Random orientation of ~10 nm grains in the plane of the film plane implies a the high density of high angle grain boundaries - Jc still greater than 106 A/cm2
