Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Engineering Materials Science : From Fundamentals to Applications
about this item
Retaining its proven concept, the second edition of this ready reference specifically addresses the need of materials engineers for reliable, detailed information on modern material characterization methods. As such, it provides a systematic overview of the increasingly important field of characterization of engineering materials with the help of neutrons and synchrotron radiation. The first part introduces readers to the fundamentals of structure-property relationships in materials and the radiation sources suitable for materials characterization. The second part then focuses on such characterization techniques as diffraction and scattering methods, as well as direct imaging and tomography. The third and final part presents new and emerging methods of materials characterization, such as three-dimensional X-ray diffraction microscopy, in-situ Laue approaches and combined diffraction and tomography methods. With all the chapters thoroughly revised and updated, and now containing about 20% new material, this is the must-have, in-depth resource on this highly relevant topic.
