How to Name Spectra

In this short video, you will learn how to easily rename individual or multiple spectra. This is very useful housekeeping functionality – making it easy to find previous data and makes it clear what is being displayed or compared in reports.

Viewing Deformation in EBSD Maps

We use examples from both materials science and geology to show how specific maps can be used to highlight particular characteristics of samples, and how these can help us in our understanding of the key deformation processes in our materials.

Understanding EBSD Orientation Maps

In this short video we use our EBSD data processing software, AZtecCrystal, to demonstrate the principles behind the most common orientation colouring schemes and, using a dataset from a quartz rock sample, we show how to interpret the colours in typical orientation maps.

Acquiring EBSD Data with High Angular Precision  

In this video, we demonstrate how to use the patented Refined Accuracy indexing technique within our AZtec EBSD acquisition software to collect orientation data with a precision down to 0.01°, yet still at speeds of approximately 100 pps, as well as how to display small orientation changes in our AZtecCrystal EBSD data processing software.
