EBSD, Electron Backscatter Diffraction Analysis, is used to perform quantitative microstructural analysis in the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), on a millimetre to a nanometre scale.
This website provides knowledge and guidance for anyone interested in EBSD - from students and newcomers to the application, through lab managers who need a quick overview, to experts striving to better understand and use the technology.
We'll cover the underlying physics and the various applications, then show you how to prepare samples and go through a typical EBSD session. Information is given in a step-by-step approach and you can even tailor your own manual after bookmarking pages of interest. We have interactive simulations, show animations and video demonstrations, and present further reading lists.
The site is non-commercial in nature. We encourage your feedback and contribution with our in-house experts.
Oxford Instruments provides microanalysis solutions on electron microscopes for Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS), Wavelength Dispersive Spectroscopy (WDS) as well as Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD). Videos and datasets were generated using the Oxford Instruments AZtecHKL EBSD system.
