Polymer are organic, often complex molecular compounds used as the building blocks for plastics, elastomers and various types of synthetic engineered materials. Polymer scientists and chemists are not always familiar with the characterization methods best used for polymeric materials. And knowing what characterization technology works best can make a huge difference in getting an accurate understanding of internal and surface microstructure and ultimately desired properties for the myriads of polymer applications in use today.

Compound semiconductors such as Gallium Arsenide, Gallium Aluminum Arsenide, and Indium Phosphide are often difficult to characterize and present a variety of challenges from substrate preparation, to epitaxial growth to dielectric film deposition to dopant introduction.

This book reviews the common classes of compound semiconductors, their physical, optical and electrical properties and the various types of methods used for characterizing them when analyzing for defects and application problems.

Ceramics are, in a general definition, materials that consist of man-made, inorganic, non-metallic solid material—either existing in a crystalline state or non-crystalline state (i.e., glasses). Materials characterization techniques are used to ensure the structural and surface integrity of ceramics for their use in a wide variety of applications, from thermal resistance to advanced electronic and optical technologies like fiber optics to structural uses.

Thin films based upon organic materials are at the heart of much of the revolution in modern technology, from advanced electronics, to optics to sensors to biomedical engineering.

This volume in the Materials Characterization series introduces the major common types of analysis used in characterizing of thin films and the various appropriate characterization technologies for each. Materials such as Langmuir-Blodgett films and self-assembled monolayers are first introduced, followed by analysis of surface properties and the various characterization technologies used for such.

Optical materials are prized for their properties such as reflection, refraction, absorption, emission, scattering, and diffraction of light in wavelengths ranging from 100 nm to 10 mm. Because small surface or atomic structure defects can have significant affects on those properties, characterization techniques that are sensitive to structures at those scales are presented for the relative effectiveness and particular applications.

Composite materials make their way into all aspects of modern technological society, but particularly so for applications requiring great strength and light weight such as in the aerospace industry. Because they are hybrid heterogeneous materials, they can be difficult to characterize with any one single methodology.

This volume in the Materials Characterization Series will guide engineers and technicians on which methods work best and what to look for when reading results, be they from X-Ray diffraction, or Nuclear Magnetic Imaging.

Catalytic materials are essential to nearly every commercial and industrial chemical process in order to make reaction times faster and more efficient. Understanding the microstructure of such materials is essential to designing improved catalytic properties.

This volume in the materials characterization series reviews the more common types of characterization methods used for understanding surface and structural properties of most types of commercially used catalytic materials.

A better understanding of the microstructure of metals and alloys has led to great advances in the performance and useful applications of these, the oldest of mankind’s engineered materials. This book in the Materials characterizations series focuses on the particular molecular and atomistic properties of metals insofar as how they affect the different techniques for measuring and analyzing internal structure, surface structure, and chemical/physical properties.
