Software to process and analyze electron backscattered diffraction (EBSD) patterns obtained in a scanning electron microscope (SEM).

EBSD-Image is a free open-source software to analyze EBSD diffraction patterns and mappings. It is built on top of RML-Image, an image analysis freeware. It therefore combines image analysis routines and tools specific to EBSD such as an engine capable of analyzing EBSD diffraction patterns. It is written in Java (cross-platform) and has a graphical and command line interface.

The objectives of this project were to develop a platform for the EBSD community to further improve the technique. In contrast with other EBSD software, EBSD-Image is flexible and extensible. Users can decide how to analyze diffraction patterns by having access to the sequence of operations and all the parameters. New algorithms can be easily implemented inside the engine. Furthermore, all file formats used are either human readable (e.g. XML) or public (easy to implement in other software). Finally, all the features are well documented inside this wiki.
