Triple junctions are one of the fundamental components of polycrystalline microstructure. Triple junction character is responsible for material behavior in relation to grain boundary and triple junction specific phenomena. By characterizing triple junctions microstructural topology and behavior may be better understood and materials with enhanced properties developed. A triple junction distribution function is generated for triple junctions with a coherent twin boundary. This function is obtained through stereological sampling techniques and provides triple point grain misorientations, dihedral angles, and line directions with respect to a crystalline reference frame.
