Overview

This volume examines important experimental techniques needed to characterise inorganic materials in order to elucidate their properties for practical application. Addressing methods that examine the structures and properties of materials over length scales ranging from local atomic order to long-range order on the meso- and macro-scopic scales, Multi Length-Scale Characterisation contains five detailed chapters:

  • Measurement of Bulk Magnetic Properties
  • Thermal Methods
  • Atomic Force Microscopy
  • Gas Sorption in the Analysis of Nanoporous Solids
  • Dynamic Light Scattering

Ideal as a complementary reference work to other volumes in the series (Local Structural Characterisation and Structure from Diffraction Methods) or as an examination of the specific characterisation techniques in their own right, Multi Length-Scale Characterisation is a valuable addition to the Inorganic Materials Series.

    Spy ponies #5

    (Why its called spy ponies is because it has grown and young ponies.)

    "How dod they get kidnapped?",Blazinwork asked."Some spies put traps around every grown ponies house.",Squeak said.

    "What do they want with the grown ponies?", Blazinwork asked."To zap all the magic and power out of them.",Squeak said."Why not the younger ponies?",Blazinwork asked."They haven't learned how to use all their magic yet.",Squeak said.

    "Hey I got to get my friends and sis.",Blazinwork said."Hey guys!",Blazinwork yelled."What's up bro?",Fire asked."We're becoming spies.",Blazinwork said.

    Just then this secret passage opened."Let's do it.",They all said. Just then this magneta with black streaks opened the door."My name is Flame Drizzle.",The filly said.

    (Don't forget your filly or colt's bio and can we get some more colts!)
