Electron backscatter diffraction is the most important and comparatively new fabrics characterization strategy aimed toward the decision of crystallographic texture, grain boundary personality distributions, lattice pressure, section id, and masses extra. the aim of this e-book is to supply the elemental foundation for electron backscatter diffraction in fabrics technology, the present kingdom of either and software program, and illustrative examples of the purposes of electron backscatter diffraction to a wide-range of fabrics together with undeformed and deformed metals and alloys, ceramics, and superconductors.
The textual content has been considerably revised from the 1st variation, and the authors have stored the structure as shut as attainable to the 1st variation textual content. the recent advancements coated during this ebook contain a extra comphrensive assurance of the basics no longer coated within the first variation or different books within the box, the advances in and software program because the first version was once released, and present examples of software of electron backscatter diffraction to resolve demanding difficulties in fabrics technology and condensed-matter physics.
