This book covers state-of-the-art techniques commonly used in modern materials characterization. Two important aspects of characterization, materials structures and chemical analysis, are included. Widely used techniques, such as metallography (light microscopy), X-ray diffraction, transmission and scanning electron microscopy, are described. In addition, the book introduces advanced techniques, including scanning probe microscopy. The second half of the book accordingly presents techniques such as X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (commonly equipped in the scanning electron microscope), fluorescence X-ray spectroscopy, and popular surface analysis techniques (XPS and SIMS). Finally, vibrational spectroscopy (FTIR and Raman) and thermal analysis are also covered.

This work is a clearly written and highly illustrated introduction to modern characterization techniques, enabling users to understand the composition and structure of materials. Encompassing not just material structure but also chemical analysis, Materials Characterization covers all key structural and functional materials from metals and semiconductors to polymers and ceramics.
Materials Characterization is an introductory book ideal for scientists and engineers embarking on material-related research and development. It is also an essential tool for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students taking a first course on the topic.About the Author:
