Unbiased Evaluation of Chord Length Distributions from Orientation Maps


Article Preview

Grain structures in crystalline material are commonly identied by orientation inhomogeneities in orientation maps. A statistical approach is introduced to extract quantitative information on the chord length distribution of grains from orientation data gathered by electron back-scattering diffraction.
