Crystallographic texture is a collection of crystalline orientations in a polycrystalline sample. The importance of a texture lies first in its direct relationship with material properties and second as a method of fingerprinting the material history. My research interests are connected with neutron texture measurements, processing and interpretations of constructional, geological, biological and ceramic samples.
Neutron texture measurements are fulfilled at the SKAT diffractometer situated at beamline 7 of the pulsed reactor IBR2 in the FLNP JINR. Most of the samples are provided from German, Polish, Russian, Romanian and Czech universities.
