Capabilities

Pole figures are the graphical output of textural measurments. Texture is often defined as preferred orientation of crystallites. These measurements involve the study of variations in intensity of a single Bragg reflection as the sample is both tilted (psi) and rotated (phi) in a specially modified diffractometer. The graphical pole figure diagram presents contours that indicate intensity levels as a function of sample orientation.
