SK2550 X-ray Physics and Applications 6.0 credits
Röntgenfysik och tillämpningar
Since their discovery in 1895, x-rays have become an invaluable tool for probing the structure of matter, and the use of x-ray radiation in science and industry is still growing. The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of materials and methods in modern x-ray physics. Important issues are x-ray optical properties of different materials, x-ray optics and detectors, present and future x-ray sources and x-ray analytical methods.
