An Introduction to Synchrotron Radiation
Techniques and Applications
This book introduces the reader to the basic concepts of the generation and manipulation of synchrotron light, its interaction with matter, and the application of synchrotron light in classical techniques. As well as including fundamentals of the main experimental methods, many of the most recent technological developments are described, especially with regards to detectors, time-resolved studies, and the advent of fourth-generation sources. Detailed descriptions, including full-colour illustrations, of the underlying physics and experimental applications are presented, while worked examples facilitate learning from a practical perspective.
Undergraduate and postgraduate students from all areas of natural and physical sciences working with synchrotron light will benefit from this informative text and its heuristic style. In addition, synchrotron scientists and facility staff will find this book a useful reference regarding essential synchrotron radiation techniques and beamline infrastructure, and in optimizing the use of synchrotron light in this rapidly developing multifaceted enterprise.
