Surface Analysis of Paper examines surface analysis techniques from a paper industry perspective and places heavy emphasis on applications. Modern techniques, including ion mass spectrometry, infrared spectroscopy, and optical profilometry are reviewed in a straightforward manner. This new book provides details on widely used methods and instruments, and discusses how they can be used to attain, for example, contour maps of the microscopic constituents on paper surfaces and accurate analyses of the physical properties of paper.

Organized into three sections, Surface Analysis of Paper provides thorough coverage of the physical characteristics of paper, and a clear picture of new and emerging analytical methods. Carefully chosen background material on fundamental concepts is included wherever such material assists in understanding the uses of analysis methods.

Each chapter contains:

  • An introduction

  • A description of the technique

  • A discussion of the type of information that can be obtained with the particular technique

  • Practical examples to demonstrate the advantages of the technique
  • Reviews

    "I certainly recommend Surface Analysis of Paper as a necessary volume for every reference library, and also for the personal library of any paper researcher who is also a materials scientist."
