                     Citation for D. Mainprice for Paul G. Silver award, 2017:
As befits a Silver Awardee, David Mainprice’s scholarship transcends boundaries of mineral physics, tectonophysics, and seismology, enabling improved understanding of S-wave splitting, thermal diffusivity, phase transitions, and relations among deformation, elastic moduli, and seismic properties. David was directly connected to Paul Silver; they co-authored two influential papers and maintained a personal friendship. But, more important in the context of this award are David’s intellectual generosity, enthusiastic mentorship, and kindly cooperation with students and colleagues. Beginning in 1990, he committed to making his petrophysics programs and databases freely available. Nowadays, collaborating with Hielscher, Bachmann, Schaeben, and others, David is a major contributor and teacher of MTEX, an open-source code providing robust statistical assessments of crystal preferred orientation, seismic-velocity anisotropy, and shear-wave polarization. At any given meeting, there are always a spectacular number of posters displaying figures using MTEX or his older software. David’s generosity extends to hosting research visits in Montpellier and providing workshops world-wide. It was easy to collect heart-felt and eloquent quotations illustrating his influence as a mentor and collaborator. D. Prior, Otago Univ., said, “Mainprice’s contributions … to texture measurement have been trend setting, yet openly available... [His lab] made world-class EBSD instruments available to international users… [When] launched 15 years ago, it included many components built in-house, sometimes out of commonly available household items (including coffee filters).” K. Michibayashi, Shizuoka University, commented, “I was very much inspired by David … [and] still rely on his products and basic ideas.” Q. Wang, Nanjing University, commented, "[Dave is] a generous teacher and friend. He helped to establish my career and taught me how to become an honorable scientist." S. Misra, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, quoted a Sanskrit aphorism, “Sharing knowledge gives humility; humility gives character.” Misra concluded that David Mainprice epitomized the essence of that saying.

David Mainprice lauréat du prix Paul G. Silver award


David Mainprice held Royal Society European Exchange Fellow at Nantes (France) in 1981/82 before moving to the department of  Science of Materials at the University of Oxford (UK) as a Science and Engineering Research Council Fellow from 1983/84. He then moved back to Nantes in 1984 as a Chargé de Recherche CNRS in the group led by Prof. Adolphe Nicolas (Laboratoire de Tectonophysique). In 1986 the group was transferred to Montpellier. In 1991 he became Director de Recherche CNRS. In 1995-96 he was on sabbatical leave at MIT holding the Crosby distinguished lectureship. From 1998 to 2003 he was director of the university service laboratory for electron microscopy. From 1999 to 2003 he was director of the UMR Tectonophysique. He was an elected member of CNRS Comité National section 18 - Terre et planètes telluriques : structure, histoire, modèles from 2004-2008. In January 2012 was elected fellow of the American Geophysical Union for his fundamental contributions to science. November 2012 he was awarded the "La Prime d'excellence de scientifique du CNRS" for his exceptional contribution to research. 2017 recipient of the Paul G. Silver AGU Award for Outstanding Scientific Service.

MTEX Reference or Related Publications

Originally developed by Ralf Hielscher as part of this Ph.D. thesis "The Radon Transform on the Rotation Group : Inversion and Application to Texture Analysis"
under the direction of Helmut Schaeben (Institut für Geologie,Technische Universität Freiberg, Germany), Ralf is currently at Fakultät für Mathematik, Technische Universität Chemnitz, Germany. Recently the toolbox has been extended to include the analysis of EBSD data by Florian Bachmann (T U Freiberg) and others.

The MTEX algorithm is described in the paper
R. Hielscher and H. Schaeben, (2008) A novel pole figure inversion method: specification of the MTEX algorithm,
J. Appl. Cryst. (2008). 41, 1024-1037 [ doi:10.1107/S0021889808030112 ].
Please refer to this paper when publishing results obtained using MTEX.

This tooolbox is ideal for people you want to lean and go beyond the contraints of closed commerical X-ray pole figure inversion or EBSD software packages.
In new version 4.1.0, just released,  features a completely rewritten misorientation analysis which is faster and much more intuitive. Considerable effort has be made to develop flexiable import facilities to read a wide range of data format of pole figures and now including HKL-Oxford, Bruker and EDAX-TSL EBSD export files. The toolbox is ongoing development project open to anyone interested, either to use and comment on the toolbox and its help files, develop code or suggest the development of new features. New physical properties codes have been written in an optimized MatLab code for this toolbox as part of ongoing collaboration with Ralf Hielscher and Helmut Schaeben.

The toolbox is well suited to teaching texture analysis; visualization of symmetry operations, pole figures, inverse pole figures, ODFs in various types of representation, spherical hamonic analysis, entropy, texture index ( = J-index of Bunge or F2 of Matthies), mean orientation, Euler angles, Rodrigues vectors, axis/angle, quaternions, misorientations etc.

Two reference publication on using texture data (pole figure inversion e.g. X-ray goniometry or single oreintation data e.g. EBSD) in MTEX to calculate and plot anisotropic physical properties now available, see below.
