generate topographical maps representing the surface features and characteristics of
the specimen. Examinations on the atomic and molecular levels are possible using these techniques. Grain Size Determination Grain size of polycrystalline materials is frequently determined using photomicro
graphic techniques Two methods are commonly employed: intercept and standard comparison charts. IMPORTANT TERMS CONCEPTS Alloy
