Comparison of deformation texture in FePd alloy via X-ray diffraction and electron backscatter diffraction techniques.Micron. 2013 Jan; 44:433-41.M
In this work, textures measured by electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and X-ray diffraction in rolled FePd alloys were compared. The effect of scanning size used for EBSD measurements was investigated. The correlation coefficient was first proposed to quantify the similarity of the orientation density profile along the α- and β-fibers after cold rolling. The correlation coefficient is approximately 1 for a scanning step range of 1-20 μm after 50% and 88% reduction. A large scanning step can capture the main components of the macrotexture in EBSD measurements. Thus, the macrotexture measured by EBSD provides another method for the quality control of texture.
