The present study is the first attempt to join ultrafine-grained materials by electron beam welding. The aim of the study was to check the feasibility and effectiveness of this type of welding for thermally unstable materials. The results obtained are of high interest, while the welding did cause a decline in mechanical properties, the results were comparable to those obtained using solid-state welding, but with a significant advantage of narrower fusion- and heat-affected zones.
