It is considered as a challenge for RABiTS route to get cube textured Ni-W alloy substrates with high mechanical and magnetic properties for coated conductors. The works of our group in recent years are summarized about different Ni-W substrates with high W content and composite tapes made by RABiTS technique. The fabrication process and the mechanism of cube texture formation in above different tapes are studied systematically. Compared with commercial Ni-5 at.%W substrate, these alloy substrates show a comparable texture quality and improved mechanical properties as well as reduced or zero magnetization especially in the novel composite substrates.
