 near-normal reflection from any realizable mirror, Talman (physics, Cornell U.) analyzes accelerator x-ray sources theoretically and idealistically. He presents individual treatments of the fourth generation designs of energy recovery linacs, "fast cycling" storage rings, and open free electron lasers A free electron laser, or FEL, is a laser that shares the same optical properties as conventional lasers such as emitting a beam consisting of coherent electromagnetic radiation which can reach high power, but which uses some very different operating principles to form the beam. , which together are the three general categories of highly coherent x-ray sources that are becoming increasingly useful for interferometric methods. The material in the book has been derived from the author's courses on accelerator physics Accelerator physics deals with the problems of building and operating particle accelerators.

The experiments conducted with particle accelerators are not regarded as part of accelerator physics.
