Identifying micro-texture regions (MTR) in deformed Ti-6Al-4V requires extensive time in electron back-scattered diffraction (EBSD) imaging with a field of view that is limited to only a few millimeters. This study uses a novel method of high throughput identification of MTR using polarized light microscopy (PLM) and validation by correlation with orientation image mapping from EBSD. Reflection of polarized light under crossed polars leads to a difference in contrast depending on the orientation of the c-axis of the α-phase. MTR that are spread over a large area are visible in PLM as bands of contrast and the field of view is large compared to EBSD maps. It is shown that the shape and size of MTR may be captured accurately in PLM, and a one-to-one correspondence is demonstrated with such regions identified by EBSD with an excellent match between the area fraction of MTR calculated using both methods. © 2022
