In this chapter, we describe the introduction and application of 2-dimensional (2D) and 3-dimensional (3D) characterization by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of two types of nanocomposite materials, ceramic matrix nanocomposites (CMNC), and polymer matrix nanocomposites (PMNCs), in particular. For the case of CMNC, structural and morphological characterizations of matrix and nanostructure phases were carried out, and for the case of PMNC, dispersion and distribution of nanoparticles as well as interparticle distances between them were investigated.
