Clean is a small demo tool for denoising and contrast enhancement of backscatter Kikuchi patterns. Kikuchi bands are accentuated for interactive detection. The demo is not optimized for high speed.

In the EBSD system "Fast EBSD" images of the microstructure can be constructed by evaluating the intensity distributions in the BKP of sequences during acquisition or off-line. These maps also show the quality of surface finish (topographic contrast, relief contrast imaging) (see pdf icon Poster Kiel 2011 ).
The phase distribution may also be revealed if differences in density are sufficiently high (Z contrast, material contrast imaging). In this program option the EBSD detector has the same function as a conventional solid state forward and/or backscatter detector.
