Surface Characterization Methods
Principles, Techniques, and Applications
"Outlines the scientific basis and experimental methods for a broad sample of surface analysis techniques, drawing heavily from established principles of physical and analytical chemistry. Sketches a simple low-cost method of tracking particles in three dimensions."
