The effect of thermal cycling creep on the dislocation networks at the γ/γ′ interfaces in the MC2 superalloy is investigated. Tensile creep tests were performed under thermal cycling and isothermal conditions at low stress (80 MPa) and high temperature (1150 °C). In these conditions γ′ rafts may dissolve and reprecipitate during thermal cycling creep. The difference between the effects of isothermal and thermal cycling conditions on the γ/γ′ interface dislocation networks, characterized by transmission electron microscopy, is exposed, as well as their evolution during the cycle. © 2011 Acta Materialia Inc.
