Application of Electron Backscatter Diffraction to Phase Identification
The distribution, morphology, and stability of material phases govern the bulk properties of virtually all of the technologically relevant materials used to design engineering components and products. Phase identification and characterization are therefore critical to the development and use of practical materials. In this chapter, we will focus on the application of electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) to phase identification.
