Eagerly awaited, this second edition of a best-selling text comprehensively describes from a modern perspective the basics of x-ray physics as well as the completely new opportunities offered by synchrotron radiation. Written by internationally acclaimed authors, the style of the book is to develop the basic physical principles without obscuring them with excessive mathematics.
The second edition differs substantially from the first edition, with over 30% new material, including:
There is also supplementary book material for this title available online (http://booksupport.wiley.com).
Praise for the previous edition:
“The publication of Jens Als-Nielsen and Des McMorrow’s Elements of Modern X-ray Physics is a defining moment in the field of synchrotron radiation... a welcome addition to the bookshelves of synchrotron–radiation professionals and students alike.... The text is now my personal choice for teaching x-ray physics...” – Physics Today, 2002

It is over a decade since the first edition of the bestseller Elements of Modern X-ray Physics was published. Given the immense level of interest in X-rays and their exploitation, there have been extensive developments in this field in the intervening years. In response to this progress, Elements of Modern X-ray Physics has been completely revised and updated and includes:
This new edition will appeal to students of courses in X-ray science, as well as biologists, materials scientists, chemists, geologists and physicists using synchrotron radiation in their research.
The availability of intense beams from modern sources has revolutionized the field of X-ray science. The capabilities of these new sources is exemplified on the front cover which shows the diffraction pattern from a crystal of the Photo Active Protein (PYP) obtained using a single pulse of X-rays lasting only 100 pico seconds from a synchrotron storage ring. This extremely short exposure time is contrasted on the back cover with the 1000 seconds or so it took von Laue to record one of the first one of the first ever X-ray diffraction pattern from crystal of ZbS approximately a century ago.
