This unique book provides an introduction to the physics of synchrotron radiation, one of the major new experimental tools that is broadening the scope of research in chemistry, molecular biology, and other sciences. The author is one of the world's foremost authorities in the field. The emphasis is on experimental techniques, not on complex mathematics, and scientific concepts are clearly defined, making this an ideal introductory text.

About the Author:

Giorgio Margaritondo, Associate Director for Research, Synchrotron Radiation Centre, University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Review:


"The book is largely descriptive, using formulas only when absolutely necessary....For those who want an overview without mathematical rigour this is a rewarding book....Very informative." --Applied Optics


"A welcome contribution to the somewhat scanty literature available on the applications of synchrotron radiation. In particular, it provides a useful graduate and undergraduate textbook on the subject . . . The author has . . . been able to present a remarkable amount of material in an attractive and intelligible form." --Synchrotron Radiation News


"Giorgio Margaritondo's brisk survey conveys in less than 300 pages the breadth and excitement of the field. The book's level of presentation is agreeably conversational and largely qualitative. . . .Margaritondo's book should find a receptive audience among newcomers to the field and readers with a more general interest. I would recommend it especially to those managers of research organizations and officers of funding agencies who feel that they have neglected their education about synchrotron radiation and who would welcome a quick way to catch up. Active researchers will no doubt wish to keep a copy or two on their shelves to lend out to students contemplating thesis projects using synchrotron radiation." --Physics Today


"The author has played an important role in the pioneering efforts in synchrotron radiation at Wisconsin and is well qualified to write this book...the book is certainly worth perusing by first-time synchrotron radiation users."--American Scientist
