Visual inspection is often the easiest and least expensive means by which materials can be characterized. Optical interrogation of a material, enhanced by microscopy and spectroscopy, is usually completely nondestructive and can be performed with minimal or in some cases no sample preparation whatsoever. This chapter covers the key methods by which optical interrogation may be applied to address materials characterization needs.
