X-ray diffraction studies have been performed to investigate the change of the preferred orientation of the crystallites as a function of externally applied mechanical stresses. For this purpose, a uniaxial tensile stage was integrated onto a Eulerian cradle in a laboratory X-ray diffraction system. Measurements have been executed while the sample experiences a certain mechanical loading. As example, orientation studies have been performed on metallic as well as on polymer samples.
