|This book covers the relevant properties (toughness, strength, elastic modulus, microstructure, hardness), material types, fracture mechanics, measurement techniques, reliability and lifetime predictions, specifics of films/coatings, microstructural considerations, and material/test selection processes appropriate for practical analysis of brittle materials. While providing the necessary basic concepts, the book primarily seeks to provide a practical, hands-on approach to the analysis of brittle materials. [196 Pages, Hardcover]|
Revealing hidden information in digital images
Quantitative information is of great importance within manufacturing and quality control, bringing objectivity and confidence to the decision-making process. Under the correct conditions, an image acquired with light microscopy will contain a wealth of information, but the trick is how to extract and utilise this effectively.
Our latest white paper, brought to you by Olympus, covers many of these methods, focusing on the importance of software throughout the entire workflow.
