Materials Characterization

AMTI’s multi-discipline approach gives our clients accurate and expert advice. Our materials characterization experts provide surface analysis, composition and contamination measurement, trace elemental analysis and microscopy that helps our clients meet goals and find answers. Our engineers are dedicated to one goal: to provide our clients with the high quality analytical results as quickly as possible.

Materials characterization describes those features of composition and structure (including defects) of a material that are significant for a particular preparation, study of properties, or use, and suffice for reproduction of that material. AMTI characterizes materials by many different advanced high technology analytical approaches. AMTI uses multiple state-of-the-art methods to provide answers to our clients. Generally the techniques used for a given problem are selected based on the information needed and the form the sample is in.

Materials Characterization | Experience

AMTI delivers materials characterization with expert evaluation, competence, propriety and integrity. We know that our clients need solid unequivocal facts. AMTI delivers results to clients that need to make critical business decisions and case resolution.

Whenever AMTI does not have the needed advance technology equipment, select accredited laboratories that AMTI works with on a routine basis, provide the accurate and precise results that are needed, such as:

  • Optical and X-ray Spectroscopy
  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy
  • Chromatography and Mass Spectroscopy
  • Classical Electrochemical and Radiochemical Analysis
  • Metallographic and Diffraction Techniques
  • Electron Optical Methods (SEM and TEM)
  • Electron Spectroscopy (EDS and WDS)

AMTI takes great care in the sampling plan to assure accurate and reliable evaluations. ASTM Standards are applied to sample preparation and examination, collection and preservation of samples and data, and handling of evidence if needed. AMTI often employs the advance tools of materials characterization in dealing with marine and industrial accidents, evaluating insurance claims and much more. AMTI provides our clients with clear, definitive results supported by meticulous scientific analysis and documentation. Over 30 years in our discipline provides clients with the confidence they require.
