The back-reflection L a u e method for determining crystal orientation is both simple and rapid, and does not involve the use of calculations or projections in solving the patterns obtained. One photograph, which can be taken in less than an hour and interpreted in a few minutes, will completely establish the orientation of the crystal being studied. The attainable accuracy is limited only by the perfection of the crystal. No special camera is needed, and crystals of any size or thickness may…

A Rapid X-ray Method for the Determination of the Orientation of Single Crystals or Large-grained Polycrystalline Aggregates

A type of goniometer is described which enables a crystal to be set in a given orientation. The method makes use of strong, high Bragg angle, reflexions which can be received on a fluorescent screen.

NOTES ON EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUE AND APPARATUS: Device for the accurate orientation and fabrication of crystals

A device has been constructed which allows a crystal slab to have a specific set of crystallographic planes oriented with respect to a reference plane, and can be used to determine the angular amount that a polished face deviates from a specified crystallographic direction.


A program which calculates various relationships of crystal geometry was prepared in FORTRAN notation for use with the IBM-704 computer. The primary outputs are the angles between planes, and the

Tabulation of Indices and Interplanar Angles for Rapid Identification of Crystallographic Planes

A computer program (PIMAX) has been developed to facilitate unambiguous identification of the orientation of single crystals. This program systematically tabulates and indexes all possible triads of

Development of texture in copper by coldrolling

The structural changes occurring in one poly crystalline and in five monocrystalline specimens as they were cold-rolled from 1to 0.005-inch thickness were studied largely by X-ray diffraction
