Tomohito joined the OMG team to work on HiRes EBSD measurements. His project has the ambitius aim of extracting absolute strain measurements from EBSD analysis by using simulated pattterns as the reference.  This has involved working on new routines for calibrating EBSD detector systems that substantially extend the accuracy limits of previous methods. 

To increase the challenge further, Tomohito is applying the method to martensitic steels.  Theses systems have a fine and complex hierarchical microstructures and relatively littel is known about the spatial distribution of lattice distortion (strains and rotations) within them.
