High-Intensity X-rays - Interaction with Matter: Processes in Plasmas, Clusters, Molecules and Solids

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Nov 30, 2011 - Science - 269 pages
Filling the need for a book bridging the effect of matter on X-ray radiation and the interaction of X-rays with plasmas, this monograph provides comprehensive coverage of the topic. As such, it presents and explains such powerful new X-ray sources as X-ray free-electron lasers, as well as short pulse interactions with solids, clusters, molecules, and plasmas, and X-ray matter interactions as a diagnostic tool. This book is equally useful for researchers and practitioners working in the field.
