Description

Microscopy Methods in Nanomaterials Characterization fills an important gap in the literature with a detailed look at microscopic and X-ray based characterization of nanomaterials. These microscopic techniques are used for the determination of surface morphology and the dispersion characteristics of nanomaterials.

This book deals with the detailed discussion of these aspects, and will provide the reader with a fundamental understanding of morphological tools, such as instrumentation, sample preparation and different kinds of analyses, etc. In addition, it covers the latest developments and trends morphological characterization using a variety of microscopes.

Materials scientists, materials engineers and scientists in related disciplines, including chemistry and physics, will find this to be a detailed, method-orientated guide to microscopy methods of nanocharacterization.

Key Features

  • Takes a method-orientated approach that includes case studies that illustrate how to carry out each characterization technique
  • Discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each microscopy characterization technique, giving the reader greater understanding of conditions for different techniques
  • Presents an in-depth discussion of each technique, allowing the reader to gain a detailed understanding of each

Readership

Materials scientists, materials engineers, materials chemists and researchers in related disciplines including chemistry and physics
