We present two quantum trajectory approaches for the simulation of electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). The quantum trajectory approaches are based on Schrödinger equation and they yield excellent agreements with experimental patterns. Meanwhile, they are particle models that allow ones to intuitively understand the processes of electron diffraction in a classical way. Besides, the approaches have significant advantages in computation efficiency. Because of the accuracy, intuitiveness, and efficiency, the trajectory approaches allow us a deeper understanding of the physical processes of EBSD.
