Methods of Nanomaterials Investigation

Pp. 84-94 (11)

Alexander D. Pogrebnjak and Vyacheslav M. Beresnev

Abstract

This Chapter briefly describes the methods, which are employed to study a nano-material ( structural and chemical analysis). Such methods as AFM (an atomic force microscopy), STM (a scanning tunneling microscopy), XRD, SIMS, mechanical tests, which are employed to study a nanomaterial (measurements of a nanohardness and an elastic modulus), are considered.

Keywords:

TEM, STM, AFM, SIMS, RBS, nanohardness.
