New ebsd.com website keeps pace with technological advances

Since 2003, Oxford Instruments has used the website www.ebsd.com to inform and educate researchers about the electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) technique. Following significant updates in both 2011 and 2016, Oxford Instruments is delighted to announce that the ebsd.com website has now been completely rewritten and redesigned, providing readers with an up-to-date overview of the EBSD technique as it stands today.

Although the physics of electron diffraction has remained constant over the past 18 years, almost all other aspects of the EBSD technique have changed, from detector technology (with the latest generation of CMOS-based detectors capable of analyses at up to 5000 measurements per second) to novel techniques for extracting important information from EBSD datasets. These developments are all addressed in the new site: there are sections highlighting the latest techniques and applications of EBSD, as well as pages that focus on providing practical advice to all users of EBSD, from the novice to the experienced EBSD researcher.

“At Oxford Instruments, we believe our products and tools enable our customers to benefit society. By launching this new, educational website, we reaffirm our commitment to supporting our customer and the broader scientific community to continue in these endeavours,” commented Dr. Patrick Trimby, the EBSD product manager at Oxford Instruments NanoAnalysis. “More specifically, we hope that all this new content will introduce more scientists to the exciting potential of the EBSD technique today, as well as helping existing customers benefit more from their EBSD systems.”

Oxford Instruments NanoAnalysis is a leading provider of EBSD technology, enabling researchers to understand better the physical properties and processing history of samples in a wide range of industries and research fields.
