1.1 This test method covers the use of the X-ray diffractometer to prepare quantitative pole figures.

1.2 The test method consists of several experimental procedures. Some of the procedures ( 1-5)2 permit preparation of a complete pole figure. Others must be used in combination to produce a complete pole figure.

1.3 Pole figures ( 6) and inverse pole figures ( 7-10) are two dimensional averages of the three-dimensional crystallite orientation distribution. Pole figures may be used to construct either inverse pole figures ( 11-13) or the crystallite orientation distribution ( 14-21). Development of series expansions of the crystallite orientation distribution from reflection pole figures ( 22, 23) makes it possible to obtain a series expansion of a complete pole figure from several incomplete pole figures. Pole figures or inverse pole figures derived by such methods shall be termed calculated. These techniques will not be described herein.

1.4 Provided the orientation is homogeneous through the thickness of the sheet, certain procedures ( 1-3) may be used to obtain a complete pole figure.

1.5 Provided the orientation has mirror symmetry with respect to planes perpendicular to the rolling, transverse, and normal directions, certain procedures ( 4, 5, 24) may be used to obtain a complete pole figure.

1.6 The test method emphasizes the Schulz reflection technique ( 25). Other techniques ( 3, 4, 5, 24) may be considered variants of the Schulz technique and are cited as options, but not described herein.

1.7 The test method also includes a description of the transmission technique of Decker, et al ( 26), which may be used in conjunction with the Schulz reflection technique to obtain a complete pole figure.

1.8  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.9  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
