This SMoRE CRP has used a wide variety of microanalytical tools to extract data from ion beam simulations of neutron damage to reactor structural materials. While some of these tools have been used for many years, others are very new and are undergoing continuous evolution and refinement. These tools have significant advantages but also have unique limitations and disadvantages. This chapter reviews the major techniques and their characteristics, especially those that require reporting significantly more experimental details than might usually be included in general publications
