By R. W. Cahn, E. M. Lifshitz

To take advantage of fabrics successfully, their composition, measure of perfection, actual and mechanical features, and microstructure has to be correctly decided. This concise encyclopledia covers the wide variety of characterization ideas essential to in achieving this.

Articles integrated should not in simple terms fascinated about the characterization innovations of particular fabrics resembling polymers, metals, ceramics and semiconductors but in addition innovations which are utilized to fabrics in general.

The ideas defined hide bulk tools, and in addition a few particular tips on how to examine the topography and composition of floor and near-surface areas. those recommendations variety from the well-established and standard to the very most recent together with: atomic strength microscopy; confocal optical microscopy; gamma ray diffractometry; thermal wave imaging; x-ray diffraction and time-resolved techniques.

This certain concise encyclopedia contains 116 articles by means of major specialists within the box from world wide to create the perfect consultant for fabrics scientists, chemists and engineers concerned with any element of fabrics characterization. With over 540 illustrations, large cross-referencing, nearly 900 references, and an in depth index, this concise encyclopedia may be a invaluable asset to any fabrics technological know-how assortment
