Extinction mapping of polycrystalline patterns

Author affiliations


Descriptions of polycrystalline patterns require the quantitative characterization of the organization of many crystallites. Automated linear birefringence imaging systems developed during the past 15 years are well suited to mapping crystallite orientation. Here, the rotating polarizer method is applied to the optical textures of polycrystalline phthalic acid spherulites.
