Development of inhomogeneous deformation is an interest matter in material engineering. Synchrotron radiation tomography provides 3D distribution map of local strain in polycrystalline aluminum alloy by tracking microstructural features. To perform further deep analysis on development of inhomogeneous deformation, crystallographic grain orientation is necessary. Three-dimensional X-ray diffraction technique was developed. A new crystallographic orientation measurement method was described in 3D space, utilizing grain boundary tracking (GBT) information.
