  • Patent number: 9557299
    Abstract: According to aspects of the present disclosure, features of interest in materials are analyzed. The method comprises capturing a morphology of the feature of interest on a surface or an interior of a material under evaluation. The method also comprises selecting targeted spatial locations on the surface or the interior of the material under evaluation based upon the captured morphology. Also, the method comprises capturing information about the local state (e.g., crystallographic orientation) of the surface or the interior of the sample at the selected targeted spatial locations. Still further, the method comprises using the captured local state information to fill in the non-targeted spatial locations in the material corresponding to the captured morphology and or topology.
