Coherent X-Ray Optics, Paperback / softback Book

Coherent X-Ray Optics Paperback / softback

Part of the Oxford Series on Synchrotron Radiation series


This book gives a thorough treatment of the rapidly-expanding field of coherent X-ray optics, which has recently experienced something of a renaissance with the availability of third-generation synchrotron sources.

It is the first book of its kind. The author begins with a treatment of the fundamentals of X-ray diffraction for both coherent and partially coherent radiation, together with the interactions of X-rays with matter.

X-ray sources, optical elements anddetectors are then discussed, with an emphasis on their role in coherent X-ray optics.

Various facets of coherent X-ray imaging are then discussed, including holography, interferometry, self imaging, phase contrast and phase retrieval.

Lastly, the foundations of the new field of singular X-ray optics areexamined.

Most topics are developed from first principles, with numerous references given to the contemporary research literature.

This book will be useful to X-ray physicists and students, together with optical physicists and engineers who wish to learn more about the fascinating subject of coherent X-ray optics.
