Misorientation Correlation Functions, MCFs, for a 72.5 percent cold-rolled OFE copper plate were calculated for groups of local lattice orientation measurements taken from the rolling-normal and rolling-transverse planes of the sample. The MCFs′ dependence upon sample direction, orientation pair selection and the spatial separation of orientation measurements was explored. A preferred misorientation region in Euler space was identified and found to contain misorientations corresponding to coincides of ∑3, ∑33c, ∑37c and ∑43c. MCFs associated with orientations of interest were found to exhibit unique characteristics.
