Real-world problem solving using EBSD

Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) is a well established microanalytical technique, providing crystallographic orientation and phase data on the sub-micrometre scale. In this tutorial we look at the wide range of microstructural information provided by EBSD, explaining how this can be used to better understand material properties and processing. Examples will show how EBSD is helping to solve key problems in different industries and research fields.

You will learn:

  • The types of microstructural information revealed by EBSD
  • How EBSD results can help researchers improve material properties
  • The wide variety of applications that benefit from EBSD data
