As is well known from scientific and technological point of view, materials characterization is an essential part in materials development processes. Due to significant progress during last years on ion accelerators technologies, its analytical capabilities and materials studies by atomic or nuclear processes, accelerators are important tools to complement traditional characterization techniques at the atomic scale used in materials research. This is advantageous, specifically in terms of characterization, modification and study of materials properties.
