Another research theme has involved studies of lattice preferred orientations (LPOs). Together with students and collaborators, especially Renee Heilbronner, I have determined the LPOs produced by slip within deformed original grains of quartzites under various conditions and have contrasted these with LPOs produced by dynamic and annealing recrystallization. I have also investigated how the LPOs differ between the deformation geometries of axial compression, plane strain and simple shear.
