Crystalline materials exhibit anisotropic properties such as resistance to deformation, large transformation strain, high electron mobility, enhanced surface catalytic activity, and huge magnetisation, along certain crystallographic directions. Correlating materials properties with crystal orientation could be a key to understanding its functional behaviour and unlocking its potential. This short course will cover the fundamentals and applications on how to use X-ray diffraction analysis as a tool to map crystal orientation in materials. Some examples will be shown such as crystal facet indexing and texture analysis of polycrystalline materials.
