This comprehensive reference work provides an overview of, and practical guide to, the various computer-aided microscopical techniques used in materials science today. After introducing the reader to the basic concepts of optics, the interactions between light and matter, and image processing, the book goes on to discuss in depth both 2D reflection microscopy and confocal laser scanning microscopy. The application of these techniques to the characterisation of materials is abundantly illustrated by hundreds of photographs and illustrations, and through specific case studies. There is also discussion of other modern optical imaging techniques and of non-optical ones such as x-ray micrography. This reference text is essential both for beginners looking for an introduction to the subject as well as advanced materials researchers in the fields where optical microscopy is used.

Dr Ashley Clarke graduated from Imperial College, London in 1967 and gained his doctorate there in space physics in 1972. After a research assistantship at Imperial College he joined the University of Leeds as a lecturer in physics in 1972. In the 1980s he designed the microprocessor-based, Vela datalogger for school science laboratories. He was appointed Senior Lecturer in 1991. For the past thirty years, he has been actively involved with various research activities: ground-based astronomy, balloon-based and far-infrared astronomy and computer-assisted microscopy for materials science. He has lectured physics, electronics and microelectronics and is on the editorial board of the Journal of Microscopy. Dr Colin Eberhardt graduated from the University of Leeds in 1996 with a degree in Physics and Mathematics. He later undertook his PhD under the supervision of Dr Clarke. His PhD thesis involved work with ICI and Du Pont, focusing on automated microscopy techniques for materials characterisation. Following the completion of his PhD, he continued to work within the group as a Research Fellow and his interests broadened to include studies of textiles using X-Ray microtomography. Dr Eberhardt is currently a Product Specialist within the microscopy and imaging company, VisiTech International and is a Light Microscopy Section committee member in the Royal Microscopical Society.
