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. Readers will find: -- Major types of characterization techniques that work best for composite materials, including X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy, Raman Spectroscopy, NMR Imaging and more -- Advanced characterization methods using Scanning Probe Microscopy and Atomic Force Microscopy -- Concise summaries of all major characterization technologies for composite materials.
