EBSD EXPLAINED

EBSD EXPLAINED

Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), is a SEM based microstructural-crystallographic technique to measure the crystallographic orientations which is applicable to any crystalline material…

EBSD ANALYSIS

EBSD ANALYSIS

When the beam is scanned in a grid across a polycrystalline sample and the crystal orientation measured at each point, the resulting map will reveal the constituent grain morphology, orientations, boundaries and the texture present in the material…

SAMPLE PREPARATION

SAMPLE PREPARATION

Because diffracted electrons escape from within only a few tens of nanometres of the specimen surface, specimen preparation for EBSD is critical to achieve successful results.

EBSD APPLICATIONS

EBSD APPLICATIONS

EBSD applications use an analysis of the crystal structure to gain an insight into primary mechanical properties such as strength, corrosion and fatigue resistance, electrical and magnetic characteristics, and more...

EBSD Electron Backscatter Diffraction Analysis

EBSD, Electron Backscatter Diffraction Analysis, is used to perform quantitative microstructure 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.
