Material Testing

Materials (biomaterials as well as inorganic or organic materials) and devices (integrated circuits, LED, Solar cell etc.) need analysis to assess product quality, functioning, safety, reliability and toxicity. Effective materials testing covers verification of material characteristics for application trials, detection of defects, analysis of failures, improvement of new materials or conducting basic research on the theoretical strength of materials.[1]

Some online resources available for Material analysis

  • TRIM/SRIM simulations to calculate sputtering yield and deformation of a substrate bombarded by energetic ion [15]
  • Handbook of analytical methods for materials. [16]
