Fundamentals of X-Ray Physics
In the classical description of electromagnetic radiation, X-rays are waves similar to radio, TV, and light waves, but with a much smaller wavelength, λ of the order of 1 A (10−10 m). The wave nature
Resonant X-ray Scattering
In this chapter we provide a brief introduction to resonant x-ray scattering (RXS) and x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) as tools to probe correlated electronic states in transition metal oxides.
X-ray and Neutron Scattering
Resonant soft X-ray diffraction - in extremis.
Experiments exploiting resonant scattering at the L absorption edges of 3d transition metal elements are reported, at the extreme limit of soft X-ray diffraction where absorption effects are so severe that the sample and diffractometer must be placed in a windowless high-vacuum vessel.
Coherent x-ray scattering
This is a tutorial paper on the properties of partially coherent hard x-ray beams and their use in the structural analysis of condensed matter. The role of synchrotron radiation in the generation of
X-ray Reflectometry and Related Surface Near X-ray Scattering Methods
Abstract Surface sensitive X-ray scattering methods are mostly non-destructive tools which are frequently used to investigate the nature of thin films, interfaces and artificial near surface
X-ray diffraction and imaging with a coherent beam : application to X-Ray optical elements and crystal exhibiting phase inhomogeneities
The exceptional properties of synchrotron light sources have been and increasingly are exploited in very different disciplines, from archaeology to chemistry, from material science to biology, from
Multiwavelength X-Ray Diffraction
The central problem of diffraction theory is determining the structure of an object given only the intensity of its diffraction pattern. In general, both the amplitude and phase must be known to
Methods and application of coherent X-ray diffraction imaging of noncrystalline particles
Fundamental theory and experimental methods of coherent X-ray diffraction imaging and the recent application in structural studies of noncrystalline specimens by using X-rays available at Super Photon Ring of 8-Gev and SPring-8 Angstrom Compact Free Electron Laser in Japan are described.


Since that time they have become established as an invaluable probe of the structure of matter
  • The range of materials for which X-rays have proved to be decisive in unravelling the structure is truly staggering. These include at one limit of complexity simple compounds, through to more complex and celebrated examples, such as DNA. In more recent times the structure of proteins, and even funct
