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.

  • Details state-of-the-art techniques commonly used in modern materials characterization, including metallography, X-ray diffraction, electron and scanning probe microscopies, X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy, vibrational spectroscopy, popular surface analysis techniques, and thermal analysis

  • Explains in simple terms how the instruments work, providing a practical guide to experimental set-up

  • Contains numerous graphics to illustrate concepts and techniques

  • Extensive end-of-chapter questions help with readers' understanding

  • Based on ten years’ experience of a successful course

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.
