Electron Backscatter Diffraction

EBSD - Electron Backscatter Diffraction - analysis is a very powerful tool for microstructural characterisation. It identifies:

The AZtec EBSD system combines the speed and sensitivity of the world's fastest and most sensitive EBSD detector, Symmetry, with the superior analytical performance of AZtecHKL software to create a powerful and versatile tool for Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) and Transmission Kikuchi Diffraction (TKD) analysis.

EBSD Explained

EBSD Explained is a 24 page tutorial that not only gives newcomers a solid foundation in the underlining science of the subject, but also shows how the theory is applied in practice to get reliable and accurate EBSD results.


Symmetry, the world's first EBSD detector based on CMOS sensor technology, is set to revolutionise EBSD analysis.


This 16 page brochure illustrates why AZtec is the leading EBSD analysis platform on the market. Covers both hardware and software.
