Rapid Measurement of Texture of Metals by Time-of-Flight Neutron Diffraction at iMATERIA and its Applications
The authors have developed the texture measurement system at iMATERIA, which is the neutron diffractometers built in Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) at J-PARC, Japan. The high flux of the incident beam and Time-Of-Flight method enabled the complete texture measurement within several minutes in case of steels. Since the neutron beam can transmit most of the materials, the measured texture represents the state of whole exposed volume. The multi-histogram analysis also enables to determine phase fractions in a multiphase material as well as the texture of each phase.
