Materials characterization is an important area of fundamental and technological interest. Numerous experimental techniques for determining the physical and chemical properties of materials have developed over the years. The companion to Advances in Materials Characterization, this volume comprises of review articles written by experts. It provides an introduction and overview of individual characterization techniques as well as a demonstration of their application to selected problems. This collection of advanced techniques will be invaluable to postgraduates, researchers, and faculty in the field of metallurgy and materials science.
