This course gives an introduction into the fascinating world of modern x-ray physics. Everybody knows that x-rays are used to investigate your teeth or scan your luggage at the airport, but did you know that the structure of most proteins today is only known thanks to x-rays? How is it possible that x-rays can  "see" what's inside a truck, but also investigate matter on an atomic level? You will learn about this and much more, including topics like:

  • X-ray medical imaging and tomography
  • Protein crystallography
  • X-ray sources, including synchrotron radiation and free-electron laser facilities
  • X-ray scattering and absorption
