X-Ray Measurement of Residual Stresses in Textured Thin Coatings


The X-ray diffraction technique is a well known non-destructive method to determine the residual stress level in a material. The most commonly used method is the 'd-sin2Ψ' method. However for textured materials and very thin coatings (0.1 .. 2 μm), this method can no longer be applied as will be shown. Therefore, a new measurement method, based on the ’glance angle’ technique has been developed.
