The positron annihilation method is a new addition to the range of sensitive complementary nuclear techniques available for material's research. The preferential sensitivity of positrons towards micro-defect domains which are not assessable by other techniques makes it an attractive tool for many materials science problems. The present paper is intended as a brief introduction on the principle of measurements and its potential is exemplified with the help of results on some metallic and ceramic systems.
