Vibratory Polishing of High-Purity Metals to Improve EBSD Results - Poster

EBSD experiments evaluated the band contrast of eighteen (18) high-purity (generally >99.95%) specimens mechanically prepared using five steps (four for Ti). These specimens varied from Mg (atomic number 12) to Bi (atomic number 83) and covered the range of metallic crystal structures: body-centered cubic (6), face-centered cubic (4), hexagonal close-packed (5), diamond cubic (1) and rhombohedral/trigonal (2). The table below lists the specimens prepared using our standard methods and analyzed. Results for six of these after vibratory polishing are shown in the second table.
