Crystal orientation measurements of samples containing coarse grains

AppNote B-XRD1040: crystal orientation of samples containing coarse grains


Pole figure measurement is an important technique for determining the crystal orientation of a sample or calculating the volume fraction of the orientation. Especially for the latter, it is crucial that the measured intensities are equal to the true intensities. Some reduction in intensity due to defocus can be compensated for using defocus corrections, but for samples containing coarse grains, the further development of measurement techniques is necessary.
