Generalized Pole Figures and Stored Energy Distribution Function Obtained by X-Ray Diffraction
Abstract. Anisotropy of physical and mechanical properties of textured polycrystalline materials strongly depends on microstructural characteristics, such as subgrain sizes, lattice deformations, etc. Generalized Pole Figures (GPF) are an attempt to estimate the anisotropy of these properties; so, the energy stored during plastic deformation is a key parameter in primary recrystallization. In this work, the technique to measure GPF (measurements and software) was implemented for X-Ray diffraction and applied to study of property anisotropy of a Fe50%Ni alloy. GPF’s of texture, crystallite size, stored energy and diffraction peak shift, (among others) have been characterized. The Full Width at Half Maximum (FWHM) of obtained instrumental functions shows that defocusing is significant for polar angle higher than 50°. The mixing parameter of the pseudo-Voigt function using in fitting, presents important dispersions.
