Shape analysis of neutron diffraction peaks was used for substructure characterization in plastically deformed, polycrystalline ferritic steel. The high resolution of the scattering device used allows a quantitative estimation of substructure parameters as e.g. dislocation densities. The resultes are in good agreement with those obtained in X-ray investigations of the material and indicate that high-resolution neutron diffraction is a useful completion of integrated substructure analysis.
