3D-XRD is a technique allowing you to track individual grains within a polycristalline sample. It was developed by several groups around the world. In our case in Lille, we rely on the implementation of the group that was in the Riso National Laboratory in Denmark and ESRF, as implement in the Fable package.

The first application of 3D-XRD for high pressure research is described in the following paper
C. Nisr, G. Ribárik, T. Ungár, G. B. M. Vaughan, P. Cordier, S. Merkel (2012). High resolution three-dimensional X-ray diffraction study of dislocations in grains of mggeO3 post-perovskite at 90 gpa, Journal of Geophysical Research 117, B03201. doi: 10.1029/2011JB008401.
Please make a reference to those two papers if you make any use of what is written here.

3D-XRD at high pressure
In our processing, there are two main differences compared to regular 3D-XRD
Both of these particularities justify the development of customize software.
