Characterization Of Nanomaterials

Nanotechnology is an emerging interdisciplinary area with wide application in all fields of science and technology. The basic of nanotechnology lies with the fact that with decrease in the particle size to nanometer range the properties of the materials changes noticeably (Joshi et al., 2008). But measuring the particle size is not a very easy task and they are posing challenges to the scientists working in this field. Thus, the discovery of various sophisticated nano characterization techniques has helped in better control of the size, morphology of the materials in nano range.

There are various characterization techniques; some of them are surface area analyzer, characterization by spectroscopy, characterization by X-Ray, characterization by microscopy, thermal analyzer and magnetic property analyzer.
