By combining our proprietary sample preparation techniques with state of the art microscopes we can provide the materials information needed to make informed decisions.

Our Tools:

Our Specialty:
Materials Big Data, using:
Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD)
Backscatter Electron (BSE)
Secondary Electron (SE)

We apply the techniques of quantitative metallography to extract metrics from microstructure datasets including images and texture information. (e.g. grain size, coating thickness, Macrozones, Microtextured regions, texture: pole figures, inverse pole figures, ODF)

Getting metrics from your microstructures is just the beginning.

Our machine-learning based algorithms find the patterns in the microstructure to explain and predict trends in material performance and pedigree.

We can provide you with a turn-key solution, or work with you to custom-tailor a solution to your needs.


Do you want to predict the mechanical behavior during plastic deformation of your titanium, aluminum, and/or Ni-based alloys?

We have the solution.
Our crystal plasticity codes can be used as a stand alone application or integrated into commercial finite element software.

Current crystal plasticity software:

  • Taylor crystal plasticity:
  • HCP metals: commercial purity titanium, Ti-6Al-4V with equiaxed microstructure, Ti-6Al-4V with colony microstructure.
  • FCC metals: e.g. Aluminum alloys
  • BCC metals: e.g. copper
  • Spectral crystal plasticity: (100 times faster than standard CP)
  • FCC and BCC
  • HCP (coming soon)
