This new 3-volume set from the Inorganic Materials Series is made up of the three stand-alone volumes: Local Structural Characterisation; Multi Length-Scale Characterisation; and Structure from Diffraction Methods. Each volume contains five carefully chosen chapters which illustrate state-of-the-art techniques for materials characterisation. They emphasise the interplay of chemical synthesis and physical characterisation, and address spectroscopic, diffraction and surface techniques that examine the structure of materials on all length scales, from local atomic structure to long-range crystallographic order. Local Structural Characterisation covers: Solid State NMR Spectroscopy; X-Ray Absorption and Emission Spectroscopy; Neutrons and Neutron Spectroscopy; EPR Spectroscopy of Inorganic Materials and Analysis of Functional Materials by X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy. Multi Length-Scale Characterisation contains: Measurement of Bulk Magnetic Properties; Thermal Methods; Atomic Force Microscopy; Gas Sorption in the Analysis of Nanoporous Solids and Dynamic Light Scattering.
Structure from Diffraction Methods includes: Powder Diffraction; X-Ray and Neutron Single-Crystal Diffraction; PDF Analysis of Nanoparticles; Electron Crystallography and Small-Angle Scattering.
