Rapid pole figure measurement of metal materials using a 2D detector

AppNote XRD1118: Rapid pole figure measurement of metal materials using a 2D detector


Generally, characterization of texture in metal materials using X-ray diffraction is carried out using pole figures of multiple indices. The Shultz reflection method using the 0-Dimensional (0D) mode is widely used to obtain pole figures. However, the 0D mode requires measurement of pole figures of reflections one-by-one and the collection of background intensity for each alpha position. These results in long measurement times. Intensities at different alpha positions can be collected simultaneously from the intensity distribution on a Debye ring by using a 2-Dimensional (2D) detector. “2D pole figure measurement” allows you to obtain pole figures in much shorter timeframes compared to 0D pole figure measurement, thus accelerating your research.
