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

By Carolyn A. MacDonald

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

Emphasizing universal actual options that underpin diversified phenomena and functions of x-ray physics, the booklet opens with a glance at nuclear drugs, motivating additional investigations into scattering, detection, and noise facts. the second one part explores themes in x-ray iteration, together with attribute emission, x-ray fluorescence research, bremsstrahlung emission, and synchrotron and laser assets. The 3rd part info the most different types 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 path for complex undergraduates and graduate scholars in physics and comparable sciences and in addition meant for researchers, An creation to X-Ray Physics, Optics, and Applications bargains a radical survey of the physics of x-ray iteration and of interplay with materials.

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

Annual Reports on NMR Spectroscopy: 54

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is an analytical software utilized by chemists and physicists to review the constitution and dynamics of molecules. lately, no different strategy has grown to such value as NMR spectroscopy. it truly is utilized in all branches of technology the place specific structural selection is needed and the place the character of interactions and reactions in answer is being studied.

Protein NMR Spectroscopy: Practical Techniques and Applications

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, a actual phenomenon established upon the magnetic homes of yes atomic nuclei, has stumbled on quite a lot of purposes in lifestyles sciences over fresh a long time. The dramatic advances in NMR innovations have ended in corresponding advances within the skill of NMR to check constitution, dynamics and interactions of organic macromolecules in resolution below on the subject of physiological stipulations.

Optical Absorption of Impurities and Defects in Semiconducting Crystals: Electronic Absorption of Deep Centres and Vibrational Spectra: 169 (Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences)

This e-book outlines, with the aid of numerous particular examples, the $64000 function performed via absorption spectroscopy within the research of deep-level facilities brought in semiconductors and insulators like diamond, silicon, germanium and gallium arsenide by means of high-energy irradiation, residual impurities, and defects produced in the course of crystal progress.

2nd International Multidisciplinary Microscopy and Microanalysis Congress: Proceedings of InterM, October 16-19, 2014 (Springer Proceedings in Physics)

The 2d foreign Multidisciplinary Microscopy and Microanalysis Congress & Exhibition (InterM 2014) was once hung on 16–19 October 2014 in Oludeniz, Fethiye/ Mugla, Turkey. the purpose of the congress was once to collect scientists from quite a few branches and talk about the newest advancements within the box of microscopy.
