## What is the zone axis in tem?

In a crystal, a group of planes parallel to a certain direction is called a crystal zone, and this direction is termed a “(crystal) zone axis.”

## What is Zone of crystal?

A zone is defined as a group of crystal faces that intersect in parallel edges. Since the edges will all be parallel to a line, we can define that the direction of the line using a notation similar to Miller Indices. This notation is called the zone symbol.

How are Kikuchi lines formed?

Kikuchi lines are patterns of electrons formed by scattering. They pair up to form bands in electron diffraction from single crystal specimens, there to serve as “roads in orientation-space” for microscopists uncertain of what they are looking at.

What is the Weiss zone law?

Weiss zone law, also known as Weiss zone rule, states that a lattice direction with indices [uvw] is contained in a lattice plane with Miller indices (hkl) if the following condition is satisfied: hu + kv + lw = 0.

### What is Kikuchi pattern in EBSD?

Pattern Formation Backscatter Kikuchi patterns (BKP), also known as Electron BackScattering Patterns (EBSD) are produced by incoherent wide-angle scattering of a stationary beam of high-energy electrons from a virtually perfect volume of crystal.

### What is EBSD used for?

Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) is a scanning electron microscopeâ€“based microstructural-crystallographic characterization technique commonly used in the study of crystalline or polycrystalline materials.

What is Weiss and Miller indices?

The Weiss parameters, introduced by Christian Samuel Weiss in 1817, are the ancestors of the Miller indices. They give an approximate indication of a face orientation with respect to the crystallographic axes, and were used as a symbol for the face.

What is lattice point?

In a crystal lattice, each atom, molecule or ions (constituent particle) is represented by a single point. These points are called lattice site or lattice point. Lattice sites or points are together joined by a straight line in a crystal lattice.

## What is Miller bravais indices?

Miller-Bravais indices are a 4-axis coordinate system for 3-dimensional crystals, based on the unit cell. This coordinate system is based on the 3-axis Miller index, but with an extra axis which is used for hexagonal crystals. The system can indicate directions or planes, and are often written as (hkil).

## What is EBSD analysis?

Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) – analysis is a very powerful tool for microstructural characterisation. Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) is a scanning electron microscope (SEM) based technique that gives crystallographic information about the microstructure of a sample.
