The measurement of grain boundary geometryby V Randle
Synopses & Reviews
Studying material properties from their geometrical measurements, The Measurement of Grain Boundary Geometry provides a framework for a specialized application of electron microscopy for metals and alloys and, by extension, for ceramics, minerals, and semiconductors. The book presents an overview of the developments in the theory of grain boundary geometry and its practical applications in material engineering. It also covers the tunneling electron microscope (TEM), experimental aspects of data collection, data processing, and examples from actual investigations. Each step of the analysis process is clearly described, from data collection through processing, analysis, representation, and display to applications.
Book News Annotation:
For researchers in materials science and engineering, physics, chemistry, and geology, a reference and handbook on all aspects of using electron optics techniques to study grain boundaries in metals and alloys, and by extension, in ceramics, semiconductors, and minerals. Outlines the theoretical framework; details each step from collecting data to presenting findings; and reviews the advantages and disadvantages of the options available. Also provides a rationale and methodology for handling the geometric data on a large, statistically significant scale.
