Deformed Iron EBSD data set

  • 1. Imperial College London


Data from Electron Backscatter Diffraction analysis for a small (83 x 110) point map captured using a Bruker eFlash HR (1st generation) with full pattern resolution on a FEI Quanta instrument. The orientation data can be loaded using MTEX 5.0.3 ( The data is released to facilitate the development of new EBSD analysis methodologies, including AstroEBSD ( which has been developed by the Experimental Micromechanics Research Group ( & the Oxford Micromechanics group ( The data is from a lightly deformed sample of interstitial free steel (Ferrite). Orientation analysis was performed using eSprit 2.1 and this is contained within the h5 file. Figures from this data set are provided to illustrate the correct representation of the data. The x axis points right to left, the y axis points top to bottom, and the z axis is out of the page (as per conventions described in Data has been captured with a 0.15 um step size.

This data was collected within the Harvey Flower EM Suite within the Department of Materials, Imperial College London. The equipment was funded under the Shell-Imperial Advanced Interfaces in Materials Science University Technology Center.
