|Electron Backscattered Diffraction (EBSD) Systems
Electron Backscattered Diffraction (EBSD) Systems can determine quantitative microstructural data on metals, minerals, semiconductors, ceramics, and most other inorganic crystalline materials.
Microstructure has an impact on a material's attributes and behavior. Describing microstructure is critical to understanding a material and its functionality. In commercial operations, material processing significantly affects microstructure, which impacts the properties of the material.
Therefore, microstructure analysis is becoming increasingly critical in a lot of different industries and study areas, including metals research materials engineering, renewable energy study and the advance of microelectronics.
Standard EBSD systems reveal grain size, grain boundary quality, grain orientation, texture, and phase identity. Samples can be analyzed on the centimeter, millimeter and nanometer scale.
