Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) is a microstructural analysis technique for crystalline materials. EBSD uses the diffraction patterns of an incident electron beam, from a scanning electron microscope (SEM), to obtain crystallographic information. The laboratory network of Infinita Lab, USA, offers this test to clients in the USA and other places.
Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) is a technique used for crystal structure analysis using the diffraction patterns of an incident electron beam, focused on the sample from a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The diffracted electrons impinge on a phosphor screen placed near the sample, where they generate visible lines called Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) patterns or Kikuchi Diffraction Bands. The technique involves placing the crystalline sample in the SEM, at a suitable angle to the incident electron beam, along with the phosphor screen located close to the sample to detect the diffraction patterns. A digital camera captures the EBSD patterns which are processed by a computer. Since the diffraction patterns represent the projections of lattice planes in the crystal onto the flat phosphor screen, they provide information on crystal orientation, allow differentiation between different crystalline phases, indicate grain boundaries, and local crystal defects. Individual grains, aggregates or multiple crystal phases near the surface of the sample can be investigated. In fact, thousands of individual grains and individual spots can be scanned using EBSD, in a few hours. It is possible to obtain images with a resolution level of several microns.
EBSD with the use of SEM is an important tool for collecting crystallographic information routinely on a range of natural and synthetic crystalline materials like metals, ceramics, rocks, ice and semiconductors.
