Recent developments in EBSD have enabled great improvements in indexing reliability and accuracy. However, some phases continue to pose considerable indexing challenges, especially those that present similar Kikuchi patterns for different crystallographic orientations. In this case the indexing algorithm may not clearly discern the correct orientation solution. This phenomenon is called “pseudo-symmetry”. Typically in these cases only very slight differences in inter-band angle separate the possible solutions and only robust and accurate band detection may identify the correct one among them.
