In Situ Texture Analysis Using Hard X-Rays


Article Preview

Due to the high penetration power, the high photon flux and the excellent brilliance high energetic synchrotron radiations are a phantastic tool particular in fast experimentation. Therefore in-situ measurements under applied load or at various temperatures have been carried out to investigate the texture influence on the deformation of magnesium and aluminium. An upgraded loading device with a power up to 20 kN was installed at the hard wiggler beamline BW5. Magnesium samples with different initial textures show the strong influence on this texture on the activation of different glide systems and on the activation of twins. First experiments to study the phase transition in titanium were performed, which demonstrate the strong orientation correlation between the α- and the β-phase.
