- Analysis of Inverse Pole Figures: LaboTex shows {hkl} in place of the cursor position on the complete inverse pole figure
and on the partial inverse pole figures. LaboTex shows Miller-Bravais indices {hkil} for hexagonal and trigonal crystal systems.
Simultanously LaboTex shows Inverse Pole Figure Intensity in cursor position and position in alpha and beta angles.
- New Dialog 'Max. Value of Miller Indice' in menu 'Analysis' allows to set maximal value of Miller or Miller-Bravais indice in the range '5' to '15'.
This dialog is important during analysis of Inverse Pole Figures when you want to find only {hkl} or {hkil} with indices
lower than default (i.e. '15').
- LaboTex calculates 'f' texture factors defined by JJ Kearns ( JJ Kearns 'Thermal expansion and preferred orientation in Zircaloy',
Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory, Report WAPD-TM-473,1965 and JJ Kearns, CR Woods, J. Bucl. Mater. 20 (1966) 241).
The 'f' factors have found use for correlations and materials characterization of hexagonal materials
(thermal expansion, irradiation growth,elastic properties in zirconium and titanium alloys).
LaboTex calculates these factors also for Orthorhombic and Tetragonal Crystal Systems.
'f' factors inform us about fractions of basal pole [0001] (or [001]) in each if three principal directions :
X (RD), Y (TD) and Z (ND). Perfect alignment of the basal poles in one direction gives an 'f' value of
'1' in that direction and '0' in second and third directions. The sum of 'f' factors in the three directions is equal 1.0.
You can start Calculation of 'f' Factors from menu 'Calculation'.
- Fixed problems in hexagonal system for second convention (model calculation, transform ODF calculation) and for inverse pole figure plot when first convention were used.
- New dialog for data format with extension 'TXT' for input of single orientation data files. Now user can choose
Nos of columns for: Phi1, Phi and Phi2 angles. User can also choose unit of angles: degrees or radians.
- User can save data for sections, skeleton lines and misorientation diagrams.
- Corrected ODF transformation from rotation model for crystal symmetry lower than cubic (ODF transformation was incorrect for some 'hkl' vectors).
- Texture index is displayed with resolution 3 digits after point. It is important for determination of quality of texture 'free' samples (samples for defocussing correction).
- Corrected displaying of volume fraction in MFM for small values of volume fraction (<0.5%).
- UXD data format allows many pole figures in files (for details please see to ->Data Formats).
- Corrected description of ODF transformation in ODF report.
- Fixed problem with ODF export (lack of data for maximal Phi1 angle).
- Fixed also several other small problems with presentation of pole figures and others.
LaboTex Version 3.0
News in version 3.0.02.
In version 3.0 of LaboTex you can find many tools for comparison of ODFs (up to 12 ODFs) and for comparison of pole
figures (also up to 12 pole figures).
- ODFs comparison (Screen Shot):
- ODF line sections (cuts) - user define two points in Euler Space (Screen Shot).
LaboTex shows ODF intensity along section defined on the base these points.
User can also choose initial points from orientations database (when click on the 'Start Point' or 'End Point' button database is available (Screen Shot) ).
Comparison up to 12 ODFs is possible, (Screen Shot)
- skeleton lines (Screen Shot). - user can create such diagrams as: alpha-fiber, beta-fiber, gamma fiber etc..
User can choose skeleton lines on the base of Euler angle (Phi1, Phi or Phi2) and:
- maximal intensity ;
- integral intensity.
User can also change ranges in which LaboTex looking for maximal odf value or made integration (from +/-2 to +/-20 deg).
User can make comparison up to 12 of skeleton lines;
Examples (3 skeleton lines):
Options: 'No fill', 'All black' (for black and white paper) ;
Options: 'Fill'.
- misorientation histograms.(Screen Shot)
User define start point in Euler Space from which LaboTex shows misorientation diagrams.
Misorientations diagrams are calculated on the base of ODFs in range 0 to 80 deg from start point (start orientation).
LaboTex shows intensity which is the releative intensity i.e.intensity relate to intensity of random sample (I=I(sample)/I(random sample))
for the same range of misorientation angle. User can make comparison up to 12 misorientations histograms.
User can also change histogram step in range 1 to 10 degrees;(Screen Shot)
There are many options to optimalize quality of diagrams :
- scale (in percent of maximal intensity value: 0.1 up 100%) (Screen Shot);
- colors (defined by user);
- types of lines (14 types with different dots+solid) (Screen Shot);
- line options (all solid, all black, black countours) (Screen Shot);
- width of lines (0 to 10 pixels) (Screen Shot);
- fill.
User can also save current parameters and/or samples (Screen Shot).
The first ODF is current ODF. Next ODFs for comparison user can choose using
appriopriate comboboxes and buttons on the tools window from right side. (Screen Shot);
- ODFs - logical operations. (Screen Shot)
For activate this option user should switch LaboTex to Compare Mode and next choose two ODFs for comparison: one in left window and second in
right window (LaboTex Compare Mode).
On the base these two ODFs (A - from left window and B from right window) LaboTex creates new ODF which is:
- intersection of ODF A and ODF B,
- diference of ODF A and ODF B (or B-A),
- union of ODF A and ODF B,
- sum of ODF A and ODF B,
- ODF difference : A or B - intersection A and B,
- inverted ODF (only for A).
New ODF is created in new Job for sample of ODF A.
You can copy and paste these diagrams to other applications or you can made images in 'BMP' ot 'TIF' format (menu 'Edit').
- Transformations of ODF. LaboTex calculates new ODF which is results transformation of initial ODF. New ODF is created in new job for sample of initial
ODF. There are two kinds transformations:
- frame rotations, (Screen Shot). - user can rotate sample frame. This option is very important if user would like to see ODF for other
(different) sample position (for example if you want see ODF for the perpendicular surface with relation to surface which was measured you should
transform initial ODF about Phi=90deg). User can create change sample symmetry for new ODF.
Example:
Initial ODF (3D Image) - Cubic ,
Initial ODF (ODF with Cubic orientation) - after transformation of frame (45 degrees, Phi axis) gives ODF with Goss Orientation .
- builder of model rotations, (Screen Shot). (crystalites/planes rotations). In first step you build rotation model and save it.
In rotation model you can choose up to 10 orientations for which you set:
- ranges of Euler angle around center of orientation (and for symmetrically equivalent positions);
- vector "hkl" around which will be rotate crystalites/planes (only these which are included in ranges chosen by user);
- rotation angle;
- recent of rotated crystalites/planes (from 0 to 100%).
In second step you choose rotation model and make ODF transformation (Screen Shot).
- Generation of single orientations (Screen Shot)
: LaboTex creates set of single orientations on the base of current ODF.
User can choose number of single orientations from 10000 to 9999999. This option is important for user which modelling deformation (VCS users) etc.;
User can also generate random set of single orientation using this option. SOR file creates by LaboTex user can input as a new sample and
he can make ODF calculation.
Examples:
ODF creates on the base set of 500,000 single orientations generates with 'Random' option.
(Screen Shot).
Section of pole figure {111} calculated on the base above 'Random' ODF. (Screen Shot).
Comparison pole figure for real texure free (random) sample (red) with pole figure generates from 'random' ODF creates on the base set of 500,000 single orientations (blue)
(Screen Shot).
- Pole figures sections (cuts). User defines start and end points on the pole figure
and Labotex shows intensity along this section (Screen Shot).
There are following cuts available:
LaboTex shows position of section line on the pole figure when button 'View' is pressed (Screen Shot).
Up to 12 pole figures can be comparised. All information about comparised PFs are displayed in infor window from left side (Screen Shot).
All pole figures which section are displayed have to be choosen before button '2D' has been pressed.
(if you choose more than 12 pole figures then LaboTex shows only first 12 pole figures sections).
There are many options to optimalize quality of diagrams :
- scale (in percent of maximal intensity value: 0.1 up 100%) (Screen Shot);
- colors (defined by user);
- types of lines (14 types with different dots+solid) (Screen Shot);
- line options (all solid, all black, black countours) (Screen Shot);
- width of lines (0 to 10 pixels) (Screen Shot);
- fill.
You can also save current parameters (Screen Shot).
You can copy and paste these diagrams to other applications or you can made images in 'BMP' ot 'TIF' format (menu 'Edit').
- On-line view of alpha (radial angle), beta (azimuthal angle) and pole figure value in mouse cursor position.
LaboTex display this data in format: (alpha,beta) PF='value of PF'. Only in case, when mode of LaboTex is switched to 'Cursor Analysis'
and toolbar button 'Show Value(s)' is pressed LaboTex shows of sums PF value(s) in pole positions which are indicates by cursors
(mark by small crosses) (for more than one of PF objects - average of sums).
; (Screen Shot)
- New column in "Near {HKL}< UVW>" window has been added: column with misorientation angles
(misorientation beetwen {HKL}< UVW> and cursor position on the ODF diagram).
(Screen Shot).
- User defined grid for pole figures. User can define grid for alpha angle and/or grid for beta angle of PF.
(Screen Shot - Dialog);
(Screen Shot - Pole Figure with grid /option 'Cross'/);
(Screen Shot - Pole Figure with example of grid);
- added several new data formats (for input data in these formats please see on the WWW page : LaboTex Formats:
- 'NJA' - Seifert ASCII data format (compatible also with data from PSD)
- 'NJC' - Seifert binary data format (compatible also with data from PSD)
- 'RWA' - Philips ATC3

- Option "Once" in volume fraction calculation is
active now (calculation of relative error between model ODF and
experimental ODF).
- New option has been added as default: "Max.
linearity" in calculations of a model ODF. LaboTex chooses orientation
(among sym. eq. orient. of component) for model building which lies in
maximal linear area of ODF. This option is essential only for cubic
crystal symmetry.
- Corrected bug in volume fraction calculation
(integration method) - volume fraction for components with sym. eq.
orientations lying on phi=0 (for example: Cube) was elevated when there
were also other components with sym. eq. orientations lying close
phi=90.
- Option "User defined .." in menu Edit for skeleton

- New options for input data: When background data of
pole figure is greater than pole figure data for some values LaboTex
makes:
a) negative values of pole figure after correction for background are
set to zero.
b) adds to all pole figure data absolute value of the lowest values of
pole figure after correction for background (LaboTex makes all data
positive); User may choose option a) or b) in "LaboTex Option" ---->
"Data Formats". Default is option a).

user defined files with isoline values. For example and details see to
"Determination of Volume Fraction of Texture Components Using LaboTex"
manual. User can save in every time current isolines . It is very
important compare objects the same type for the same set of isolines.
LaboTex Version 2.1.011 news (17.01.2003)
- New data format "NJA" - Seifert® ASCII data format.
Each pole figure and background file has to be in separate file with
extension NJA.Pole figures data files are input from "Choose
Experimental Data" list and defocussing correction data (random pole
figures data) can be input if necessary from "Choose Defocussing
Correction" list. 'NJA' files contain background data (additional files
with background data are unnecessary).
- The possibility of the evaluation of parameters of
component peak. New slider in Quantitative Analysis which allows
magnification of component peak and manually evaluation its parameters
(heights, FWHM...).
- Labotex can read background files for UXD format:
data for background please mark with 'B' letter in indices of pole
figure ( in filename - for example '<111B>corund'). LaboTex
requires one pole figure on the one UXD file. Each pole figure and
background file has to be in separate file with extension UXD.For
example: sample_100.UXD, sample_100BL.UXD, sample_100BR.UXD, ... (files
with terminations BL or BR are background from 'left' and 'right' side
of PF. LaboTex average BL and BR values). You may use only BL or BR
file, too. Background files in UXD format are allowed only one
background value for one alpha value.
- Fix problem with symmetrically equivalent
orientations for some fiber components (problem appeared only in case of
axial sample symmetry!). For example: for component <511>fiber LaboTex
shows only <511>fiber and <151>fiber sym. eq. Now LaboTex shows all
symmetrically equivalent orientations: <115>fiber, <511>fiber and
<151>fiber.
- Extended format for display value of isoline and
maximal value of ODF. Now it is long enough even for very sharp
textures.
- Fix problem in compare - high resolution mode with
display ODF values.
- Special case of integration of volume fraction for
orientation lying on the Phi=0 plane (for example {001}<110>). These
orientations are not 'points' but are 'lines' for Phi1+Phi2=const. See
for FIGURE . LaboTex
makes integration for all points belong to plane Phi=0 and for all
points belong to the planes for which Phi is in the range of delta Phi
(Phi1 and Phi2 angles extend to the full range of the basic area and
Delta Phi1 and Delta Phi2 ranges are without meaning for these
orientations of component).
LaboTex Version 2.1.010 news (22.10.2002)

LaboTex Version 2.1.009a news (11.10.2002
- extended version 2.1.009)
- New options in calculation of volume fractions.
Calculations of volume fraction of chosen texture components are
performed by integration around those components in basic region. Each
components can be represented by more than one symmetrically equivalent
position (orientations) in basic region.
Fundamentals for calculation of volume fraction of texture
components:
- LaboTex makes integration around each orientation
in the ranges delta chosen by the user for each Euler angle:
- Phi1-delta(Phi1) to Phi1+delta(Phi1),
- Phi-delta(Phi) to Phi+delta(Phi),
- Phi2-delta(Phi2) to Phi2+delta(Phi2),
- In the case of exit outside the basic region of
ODF space (Euler angles space) LaboTex continues integration in
equivalent area of the basic region.
The overlapping problem
The overlapping problem appears when integration ranges (delta) are too
wide or when orientations are near each other in Euler angles space.
Integration area of texture components can be overlapped in two ways:
i) Overlapping of integration ranges between symmetrically equivalent
positions of component
ii) Overlapping of integration ranges between different components
LaboTex gives three different abilities (strategy) to solve problem of
overlapping of integration ranges between symmetrically equivalent
positions of component (case i) :
- "Simple Integration" - overlapping region is
multiply integrated. Integration around any single component in full
range of basic region gives (100% minus background)*number of
symmetrically equivalent position.
- "Singlely Counts in Overlapping Area" -
overlapping region is only singlely integrated for component.
Integration around any single component in full range of basic
region give 100% minus background.
- "Divide by Number of Symmetrically Equivalent
Position" - LaboTex integrates for all symmetrically equivalent
positions of the components with proper weight equal 1/number of
symmetrically equivalent positions. Integration around any single
components in full range of basic region give 100% minus background.
To solve problem of overlapping of integration ranges between different
components LaboTex offers (case ii):
- Total percent of overlapping (overlapping volume
fraction) is displayed in special window ("Orientations Overlap").
Overlapping volume fraction can be limited by diminishing
integration ranges of texture components.
- In case of "Simple Integration" overlapping
volume fraction means sum of overlapping between different
components and between symmetrically equivalent positions of all
overlapped components.
- In case of "Singlely Counts in Overlapping
Area" overlapping volume fraction means sum overlapping between
different components.
- In case of "Divide by Number of Symmetrically
Equivalent Position" overlapping volume fraction means excessive
orientation overlap. Excessive orientation overlap area is
defined in the points where sum of weights is greater than 1.
The weight is equal to 1/number of symmetrically equivalent
positions. Excessive ODF value in given point is equal to the
product of the ODF value and sum of weights minus 1. The volume
fraction of excessive orientation overlap is the integral of
excessive ODF values in mentioned area.
- Overlapping volume fraction can be divided among
overlapping orientations. This option causes the division of ODF
values from overlap areas among overlapping orientations:
- in case of "Simple Integration" and "Singlely
Counts in Overlapping Area" ODF values in overlapping areas are
divided proportionally to number of symmetrically equivalent
overlap orientations.
- in case of "Divide by Number of Symmetrically
Equivalent Position" excessive ODF values in overlapping areas
are divided among components proportionally to the weights and
to number of symmetrically equivalent overlapping orientations.
- Fix problem with false information about not enough
free space on the disk.
- Fix problem with UXD files.
- Now LaboTex shows minimal and maximal value of
objects (PF,INV and ODF) separately for left and right window in the
Compare Mode.
- Improved the refreshment of the screen after the
change of colours in the Compare Mode.

Please choose required format in LaboTex Options. If
extensions of files with data differ from higher indicated please to
change it on correct.
Now LaboTex is able to import data in 24 data formats!
- Only orientations type are changed and indicated in
'AUTO' mode (during orientation analysis for pole figures).
- Now LaboTex makes printable reports from
qualitative and quantitative calculations.
- Now LaboTex shows diagram of ODF values around all
symmetrically equivalent orientations (in quantitative analysis). Please
click on the proper position on the list box.
- Corrected calculations of ODF for axial symmetry.
- Improved the usage of set of orientations in
quantitative analysis
LaboTex Version 2.1.008 news (29/03/2002)
- Save PFs and ODF images as bitmap files: BMP,TIF
(width, height and resolution of image can be given by user selection),
- Copy to clipboard as a bitmap in 2-D and 3-D (printer
or screen resolution!!!),
- The possibility of the choice of the axis convention
in hexagonal system,
- Numerical settings in 3-D (distance, rotation, shift,
axis lengthening (abbreviation)),
- LaboTex allows negative indices in additional pole
figures calculations,
- Now, arrangement of objects on the printer output is
the same as on the screen,
- Small changes of the appearance toolbars.
LaboTex Version 2.1.007 news
- LaboTex allows negative indices for pole figures
LaboTex Version 2.1.006 news
- LaboTex convention for sample and crystal coordinate
system - from version 2.1.006 (change important in Euler to Miller
conversion and Miller to Euler conversion for symmetry lower than cubic
symmetry):
- 1) X,Y,Z axis perpendicular to each other,
- 2) [100] axis is in XZ plane,
- 3) Z axis is paralel to the [001]
crystallographic plane,
- 4) Crystal coordinate system and sample
coordinate system should be at the same order i.e. both right-handed
or both left-handed,
- 5) Bunge definition of Euler angles.
- Now, LaboTex shows exactly and approximately
orthogonal vectors {HKL}< UVW> for indices lower than 15 (eliminates
"Non orthogonal" information). Conversion Euler angles to Miller indices
is made on the basis of cell parameters of sample (in compare mode - on
the basis of cell parameters sample from active window). If pole figures
in active window have different cell parameters conversion is made on
the basis of cell parameters of sample which pole figure is first in
active window.
- Now basic area for pole figures is equal to a full
range of Euler angles hence number of orientations in basic area (in
combo box) can be different for ODF and PF objects.
- The window for set up {HKL}< UVW>.indices has been
changed. Now you can see for active window: cell parameters, orientation
type (Euler angles and Miller indices), basic region, orientation(s) in
basic region (Euler angles and Miller indices).
- New samples for hexagonal symmetry
- Fix error in "Copy to clipboard" in low resolution
- Fix error in save isolines (for isolines > than
odf-max or pf-max)
- Fix error for long LaboTex path
- Fix error : inactive compare mode when user changes
symmetry after opening LaboTex
- LaboTex allows new grid cell:
1.8x1.8,2.25x2.5,3.6x3.6,4.5x4.5 (exceptions: trigonal,hexagonal crystal
lattice symmetry)
- Fix error : approximate values of cell parameters to
only two digits after decimal point (now three digits).
