Measurement is an integral part of interaction among humanity and the physical world. It provides us a dependable and reproducible path of quantifying the world in which we live. Instrumentation is done for the sake of obtaining the required information pertaining to the completion of a process. The correlation of physical and chemical properties with structural characteristics, productions, and preparation conditions are of crucial importance for the development of new products and the optimization of existing products. Comprehensive knowledge of the material properties of a product under production or application conditions is therefore critical for its success. Thus so far, we have focused on the relationship between the structure of a material and its properties/applications. However, we have not yet focused on how one is able to determine the structure and composition of materials.
