The adaptability of time-of-flight neutron diffraction for quantitative texture analysis is demonstrated. Measurements with this technique on drawn steel wire show good agreement with the results from conventional neutron diffraction experiments. A short description of the neutron time-of-flight method is given. Its application for texture investigations especially on low-symmetry crystalline systems, multiphase materials and for in situ studies is discussed.
