About this Book

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 the "classical" techniques, while including some of the most modern technological developments. As much as possible, complicated mathematical derivations and formulas are avoided. A more heuristic approach is adopted, whereby the general physical reasoning behind the equations is highlighted.

Key features:

  • A general introduction to synchrotron radiation and experimental techniques using synchrotron radiation
  • Contains many detailed "worked examples" from the literature
  • Of interest for a broad audience - synchrotrons are possibly one of the best examples of multidisciplinary research
  • Four-colour presentation throughout
