<b>SPECTROSCOPY FOR MATERIALS CHARACTERIZATION</b> <p><b>Learn foundational and advanced spectroscopy techniques from leading researchers in physics, chemistry, surface science, and nanoscience</b> <p>In <i>Spectroscopy for Materials Characterization,</i> accomplished researcher <i>Simonpietro Agnello</i> delivers a practical and accessible compilation of various spectroscopy techniques taught and used to today. The book offers a wide-ranging approach taught by leading researchers working in physics, chemistry, surface science, and nanoscience. It is ideal for both new students and advanced researchers studying and working with spectroscopy. <p>Topics such as confocal and two photon spectroscopy, as well as infrared absorption and Raman and micro-Raman spectroscopy, are discussed, as are thermally stimulated luminescence and spectroscopic studies of radiation effects on optical materials. <p>Each chapter includes a basic introduction to the theory necessary to understand a specific technique, details about the characteristic instrumental features and apparatuses used, including tips for the appropriate arrangement of a typical experiment, and a reproducible case study that shows the discussed techniques used in a real laboratory. <p>Readers will benefit from the inclusion of: <ul><li>Complete and practical case studies at the conclusion of each chapter to highlight the concepts and techniques discussed in the material</li> <li>Citations of additional resources ideal for further study</li> <li>A thorough introduction to the basic aspects of radiation matter interaction in the visible-ultraviolet range and the fundamentals of absorption and emission</li> <li>A rigorous exploration of time resolved spectroscopy at the nanosecond and femtosecond intervals</li></ul> <p>Perfect for Master and Ph.D. students and researchers in physics, chemistry, engineering, and biology, <i>Spectroscopy for Materials Characterization</i> will also earn a place in the libraries of materials science researchers and students seeking a one-stop reference to basic and advanced spectroscopy techniques.
