An Introduction to X-Ray Physics, Optics, and Applications by Carolyn A. MacDonald PDF

By Carolyn A. MacDonald

In this e-book, Carolyn A. MacDonald presents a finished creation to the physics of quite a lot of x-ray purposes, optics, and research instruments. conception is utilized to sensible concerns of optics and functions starting from astronomy to scientific imaging and fabrics analysis.

Emphasizing universal actual innovations that underpin diversified phenomena and purposes of x-ray physics, the e-book opens with a glance at nuclear medication, motivating additional investigations into scattering, detection, and noise records. the second one part explores subject matters in x-ray iteration, together with attribute emission, x-ray fluorescence research, bremsstrahlung emission, and synchrotron and laser resources. The 3rd part information the most varieties of interplay, together with the physics of photoelectric absorption, coherent and Compton scattering, diffraction, and refractive, reflective, and diffractive optics. purposes during this part comprise x-ray spectroscopy, crystallography, and dose and distinction in radiography. A bibliography is incorporated on the finish of each bankruptcy, and suggestions to bankruptcy difficulties are supplied within the appendix.

Based on a direction for complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars in physics and similar sciences and likewise meant for researchers, An advent to X-Ray Physics, Optics, and Applications bargains a radical survey of the physics of x-ray new release and of interplay with materials.

  • Common facets of various phenomena emphasized
  • Theoretical improvement tied to sensible functions
  • Suitable for complex undergraduate and graduate scholars in physics or comparable sciences, in addition to researchers
  • Examples and difficulties comprise purposes drawn from medication, astronomy, and fabrics analysis
  • Detailed ideas are supplied for all examples and difficulties
