Acoustic Microscopy

Second Edition

Andrew Briggs and Oleg Kolosov

Monographs on the Physics and Chemistry of Materials

  • Gives a connected account of principles and practice, including the underlying theory and practical implementation of the methodology
  • Acoustic microscopy allows to image the elastic properties of materials
  • Acoustic microscopy gives strong contrast from defects including subsurface defects invisible otherwise
  • Illustrated with a wealth of examples
  • Second edition has a major new chapter on acoustically excited probe microscopy, which enables the elastic structure to be imaged with nanoscale resolution
