SESSION 16: Testing and Characterization of Materials – Methods, Equipment and Errors

There are several methods and equipment for the measurement and characterizaton of  the chemical and mineralogical  composition, nano-, micro- and macro-structures, as well as physical, optical, magnetic, electrical, chemical, thermal, mechanical  usually interdependent properties of materials. Moreover, each sample has particular structures and characteristics. Hence, different uncertainty budgets have to be considered  in the measurements of properties of mostly unknown samples. Each experimental approach and instrumental set-up is possibly subjected to more or less serious problems that can bias the measurement results and thus their accurate interpretation. A better awareness of possible uncertainty components associated with the methodology and equipment used would improve the quality of studies.

The session provides a platform and is of interest not only for scientists, researchers, PhD students and engineers in the field of material testing, characterization and measurement in a wide range of academic disciplines (physics, chemistry, mathe-matics and engineering) but also for equipment users and developers.
