Reviews

@from:Alan Boyde, University College London @qu:...after delving into this volume, one is far better equipped with the fundamental physical principles behind the various techniques, the classes of information that can be obtained, the types of specimen preparation that will be required, and indeed, some idea of whether it would be possible with one's own material...an excellent volume... Given the stables from which it derives, it is hardly a surprise that this is a first rate source. @source:Scanning @from:Derek Budgell @qu:The Concise Encyclopedia of Materials Characterization provides an excellent review of the materials characterization field and will be a valuable source of information for either a specialist or novice in this area. I believe it to be an important addition to the collection of Concise Encyclopedias offered by Pergamon Press. @source:Advanced Materials @from:I.M. Hutchings, Librarian, Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy @qu:...this book provides a valuable collection of concise yet reliable accounts, mostly written by internationally recognised experts, on nearly all the important techniques and many more. Articles are generally well illustrated and supplemented by useful lists of references, and access is facilitated by a good index...the editors are to be congratulated for the excellence of the cross-referencing and the admirable uniformity of level of treatment which has been achieved over the contributions from some 130 different authors, and upon the inclusion of useful articles on several techniques which have become viable research tools only in the past few years.... The book will prove a valuable and authoritative initial reference source for materials scientists or engineers needing to explore the techniques available to evaluate material properties, at the research or industrial development level. It is well produced and bound, and can be warmly recommended to the industrial or academic library with readers in any of the physical sciences or engineering, and also to research groups and indiduals working in the area of materials characterisation. @source:Science and Technology
