Abstract: To investigate grain rotation caused by twinning-detwinning during plastic deformation, experiments using synchrotron high energy X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) are carried out under in situ compression-tension loading. Comparison between the XRD and EBSD data confirms that the intensity change of diffraction rings in XRD experiment is caused by twining and detwinning. A good agreement of twin fraction values obtained from XRD and EBSD is achieved. This demonstrates that the grains and texture are homogeneously distributed along the normal direction of the sample. In the meantime, it is observed that detwinning can only be activated in a large quantity when the loading reverses into tension from compression in the first loading stage.
