  • Introduces basic knowledge for nanomaterial characterization focusing on key properties and the different analytical techniques available.
  • Provides a quick reference to different analytical methods for a given property highlighting their pros and cons.
  • Presents numerous case studies, ranging from characterizing nanomaterials in coffee creamer suspension to measurement of airborne dust exposure levels.
  • Provides an introduction to other topics that are strongly related to nanomaterial characterization e.g. synthesis, reference material and metrology.
  • Includes state of the art techniques: scanning tunneling microscopy under extreme conditions, novel strategy for biological characterization and methods to visualize multidimensional characterization data.
