Electrical and electronic measurements of materials are among the most powerful techniques available for materials characterization. These measurements can reveal information that completely characterizes the electrical transport properties of the material. Furthermore, modern instrumentation makes precision measurements and computer interfacing straightforward at reasonable cost.
