Abstract

The ability to resolve the wavelength in neutron transmission experiments has opened up a wide range of applications investigating crystallographic structures and properties. The investigations presented in this paper apply the Bragg edge transmission technique to the study of texture in a cylindrical aluminium specimen. The feasibility of this method is the main focus of this work; hence, conventional pole-figure measurements have been conducted with neutron diffraction to provide reference data for the evaluation of the transmission results. Furthermore, a Monte Carlo simulation has been developed to emulate the experimental conditions and allow investigations of instrument effects. The results have been compared and are discussed with respect to quantitative
texture analysis.
