  • Provides a complete update of the earlier work, with inclusion of all significant techniques that are currently used for materials characterization at the introductory level
  • Builds upon the existing framework, with multiple significant updates and additions, such as methods for nanomaterials and biomaterials characterization
  • Covers the wide range of scanning probe techniques and most recent advances in electron microscopy, as well as expansion of electron back scatter diffraction (EBSD) and diffraction techniques for stress measurements
  • Updates the entire chapter on computational approaches to reflect the latest software and methods used
  • Includes significant expansions and new topics, including laser Raman spectroscopy, infrared microscopy, acoustic microscopy, X-ray tomography, nuclear magnetic resonance, secondary ion mass spectroscopy, glow discharge spectroscopy, and computational image quantification methods


This completely revised and expanded new edition covers the full range of techniques now available for the investigation of materials structure and accurate quantitative determination of microstructural features within materials. It continues to provide the best introductory resource for understanding the interrelationship between microstructure and physical, mechanical, and chemical properties, as well as selection and application of techniques for both basic and applied studies. In particular, changes have been made to reflect developments in analysis of nanoscale and biological materials.


We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
