crystallographic texture

[¦kris·tə·lō¦graf·ik ′teks·chər]
(mineralogy)
A texture of replacement or exsolution mineral deposits, with the distribution and form of the inclusions controlled by the host-mineral crystallography.

The articles cover a broad spectrum of topics including high-pressure crystallography, magnetic structure determinations, quasi-crystals, novel biomaterials, biological minerals, structure determination via neutron and x-ray diffraction, reduced cells, standard reference materials, phase equilibria and ceramic oxides, crystallographic texture, zeolitic materials, near perfect crystals, electron diffraction, crystallographic databases, protein crystallography, crystallography in construction, and synchrotron radiation.
Most of the experimental features recorded while studying the plastic deformation of polyethylene are found again for polypropylene: i) high strain-hardening in uniaxial tension versus no hardening (even small softening) under simple shear, ii) considerable decrease of the density and the viscoelastic coefficient with plastic strain in tension versus relative stability of these parameters under shear and iii) development of an axisymmetric crystalline texture in tension {fiber texture) with the c axis orienting along the tensile axis, versus planar crystallographic texture under shear with the c axis turning toward the shear direction.

Texture, more correctly crystallographic texture, is the crystallographic orientation of the multitude of individual crystallites, or grains, that make up metals, ceramics, minerals, and most other solid-state materials.
With the rapidly increasing use of thin film technology, where sharp axisymmetric crystallographic texture normal to the film plane is frequently observed, the occurrence and impact of texture are rising.
