The physical properties of many samples are dependent on the common alignment of particular crystallographic directions: one of the easiest ways to view this is to use pole figures or inverse pole figures.

Mambo is an advanced pole figure program that provides all the features necessary to examine preferred crystallographic orientations in samples analysed using EBSD. However, not only can Mambo analyse orientation data, but it can also be used to study misorientation data. The rotation axes associated with every boundary in the sample can be plotted in either sample or crystal coordinates, thus helping to identify the nature of any special boundaries.

All displays in Mambo can be contoured using advanced contouring algorithms, providing density and contoured displays as required. Mambo is the perfect tool for viewing EBSD data in pole and inverse pole figures.
