Abstract

A newly developed laser powered heating stage for commercial SEMs in combination with automated established electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) data acquisition is presented. This novel experimental setup can be used to achieve more information about microstructure and orientation changes during grain growth, recrystallization, recovery, and phase transformations. First results on the αγα phase transformation in steel within 886C–900C are presented.
