Recent advances in microtechnology and the development of new electronics and microsystem devices in automotive industry and communication sector have led to a strong need in material characterization on the micro and nano scale. Defects occurring due to thermal or mechanical material mismatches have to be analyzed by suitable methods. If they cannot be avoided completely, e.g. microcracks in materials or at interfaces, evaluation of their effect on the life time of the component is inevitable.
