The purpose of this Bulletin_85 is to provide links to Online Sources.
The study of metals starts from the science of materials.
The methods that were devised and the means developed are essential to learn the subjects.
In particular they help to observe and describe the characteristic micro-structure of metals and alloys.
The Online Resources listed here offer a wide range of publications presenting essential knowledge on the above subjects.
PWL#117B - Bulletin_85: Resources on Metallography and Microscopy to study Metals Micro-Structure. Specimens preparation: cutting, grinding, polishing, etching. Optical microscope, Electron microscope, Atomic force microscope, Scanning tunneling microscope, Photomicrography, Digital Imaging and much more...
The references published in this Bulletin_85 are selected to provide useful knowledge to our readers.
Some of the sources are commercial companies, presenting their services or goods together with technical advice.
No endorsement or recommendations of such offers is intended.
Readers should check if such information meets their purposes and needs.
The addresses reported hereafter in this Bulletin_85 were live and correct at the time of their publication.
There is no guarantee that they will always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.
Note: References to articles or other documents are given here in one of two forms. If the links are "live" (usually underlined or otherwise highlighted) they are operated with a click of the mouse.
If they are URL's (Uniform Resource Locator), which is the analogue of an address, they begin with "http://..." or "www.". These are not live and must be copied and pasted entirely into the browser (after having selected them with the mouse or otherwise).
If they are long they may be displayed in two or more lines. In that case one has to care that the URL be copied completely in a single line without any space, and Enter.
If the information is important to you, you may save the downloaded selected pages in a suitable folder on your Computer for easy reference.
You are welcome to forward this Bulletin_85 Resources page to those of your friends who may profit of this information.
