EBSD Examples

EBSD – Electron Back Scatter Diffraction is a technique using the electron beam of a SEM to differentiate the crystallographic orientations of grains on a sample surface. From EBSD we obtain:

  • Grain orientation
  • Grain size
  • Misorientation between grains
  • Pole figures and maps

Electron Channeling Pattern Kikuchi Map

EBSD example: electron channeling pattern

Inverse pole figure map Grain boundary map
EBSD example: inverse pole figure map
