Principles of Materials Characterization and Metrology

Kannan M. Krishnan


Characterization enables a microscopic understanding of the fundamental properties of materials (Science) to predict their macroscopic behavior (Engineering). With this focus, the book presents a comprehensive discussion of the principles of materials characterization and metrology. Characterization techniques are introduced through elementary concepts of bonding, electronic structure of molecules and solids, and the arrangement of atoms in crystals. Then, the range of electrons, photons, ions, neutrons and scanning probes, used in characterization, including their generation and related beam- ... More

Keywords: Materials characterization & analysis, Metrology, Instrumentation, Diffraction, imaging, and spectroscopy methods, Electrons, photons, ions, neutrons, and scanning probes, Structure-property-processing relations, Surface science, Microscopic understanding of materials properties, Symmetry and crystallography, Applications in science, technology, and biology
