Determination of orientation in magnesium by polarized light examination

Journal Article (Academic Article)

Results equivalent to those of T.ERNST and F.LAVES (see Engineering Index 1949 p 668) obtained in investigation after etching specimens for 6 to 8 sec in acetic picral solution; technique has been used to determine local reorientations caused by inhomogeneous deformation and is currently employed to study changes in preferred orientation that result from heavy twinning and annealing.
