OIM Map

OIM map of intergranular fraction in a nickel superalloy. The box shows a twin which has fractured. Twins are generally assumed to be fracture resistant.

Orientation map of a nickel-base superalloy sample

Orientation map of a nickel-based superalloy sample

This map was collected at approximately 1000 indexed patterns per second with an incident beam current of approximately 4 nA at 20 kV, with indexing success rates greater than 99 percent. This data represents a 53 percent improvement with the Hikari XP over the previous generation of the Hikari camera.
