Accelerator X-ray sources.


Accelerator X-ray sources.

Talman, Richard.



476 pages




Concerned only with x-rays of wavelength so short that there is negligible 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, 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 given at his home institution and at the US Particle School and at the Canadian Light Source at the U. of Saskatchewan.
