EBSD is a scanning electron microscopy technique that can be used to determine the crystalline orientation at the surface of a sample. This enables one to characterize the texture, grain size, nature and distribution of phases, grain boundaries as well as deformations and stresses. EBSD can be applied to a large range of materials including alloys, ceramic composites, thin films and mineralogical samples.

-Determine the texture
-Determine the grain size
-Identify phases and their distribution
-Characterize deformations and stresses
