The new 'Griggs' type solid medium apparatus for deformation under high temperature and pressure conditions (up to 1300 C and 6 GPa). The apparatus was installed at the Rock Deformation lab at Ben-Gurion University February 2020.
We often use the Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) sensor installed on a scanning electron microscopy (SEM) in the Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science & Technology at BGU. The EBSD allows constructing orientation maps of polished sections with a sub-micron step size. The EBSD is a powerful tool in the study of the deformation at grain and sub-grain scales.
