This Handbook compiles advanced methods for materials measurement and characterization from the macroscopic to the nano-scale. Materials professionals need not only handbooks of materials data but clear guidelines and standards for how to measure the full spectrum of materials characteristics of new materials ans systems. Since materials science forms a bridge between the more traditonal fields of physics, engineering, and chemistry, unifying the varying perspectives and covering the full gamut of properties also serves a useful purpose. This handbook is the first dedicated to these practical and important considerations.For the certification of reference materials instruments based on Fizeau and Michelson interferometers have been used [8.43, ... 8.3.2 Push Rod Dilatometry The most common method of measuring thermal expansion is push rod dilatometry.
