Materials characterization is an important area of fundamental and technological interest. Over the years, a variety of experimental techniques have been developed for characterizing the physical and chemical properties of materials. Advances in Materials Characterization offers an overview of this continually emerging discipline by providing an in-depth exploration of the latest techniques. It brings together a highly authoritative collection of articles written by experts from across the world who have been active in pioneering the techniques. Each chapter provides an introduction and an overview of the technique, and then proceeds to demonstrate its application to selected problems.
