Grenet and T.M. Duc). 11. Optical constants (D.W. Lynch). Bibliography. Author index. Subject index.


Volume 2 of this series concentrates on the use of synchrotron radiation which covers that region of the electromagnetic spectrum which extends from about 10eV to 3keV in photon energy and is essentially the region where the radiation is strongly absorbed by atmospheric gases. It therefore has to make extensive use of a high vacuum to transport the radiation to the workstation where the presence of hard X-rays can cause extensive damage to both the optics and the targets used in the experimental rigs. The topics chosen for this volume have been limited to the disciplines of physics and chemistry.

@qu:... the chapters are well written and informative and the collective knowledge and experience of the authors are impressive. I can certainly recommend this handbook as an excellent starting point for researchers entering the synchrotron radiation field.
