Abstract : A modification is shown of the Schulz reflection method for determining pole figures which avoids the use of a separate transmission sample. A surface whose normal is equidistant 54 degrees 44 minutes from the rolling plane normal, rolling direction, and transverse direction is cut on a composite sheet or solid sample. Complete information for one quadrant of the pole figure can be obtained by diffraction from this surface, with the geometry of the Schulz reflection method being maintained. A polar stereographic net has been constructed for use in plotting data from a sample surface cut at this angle. In addition, a randomizing net is shown which allows determination of the random intensity level of a pole figure, therby obviating the necessity of experimentally determining the random intensity on a separate random sample.
