Application of Synchrotron Radiation to Materials Science III
Synopses & Reviews
As third-generation synchrotron facilities are constructed and go online in both the United States and around the world, increasingly more applications of synchrotron radiation will be realized. Both basic and applied research possibilities are manyfold, and include studies of solid surfaces and interfaces, electronic materials, metal oxides, glasses, thin films, superconductors, polymers, alloys, multilayer metal systems and intermetallic compounds. In addition, the combination of synchrotron-based spectroscopic techniques, with ever increasing high-resolution microscopy, allows researchers to study very small domains of materials in an attempt to understand their chemical and electronic properties. This book from MRS focuses on the various types of information that can be obtained from synchrotron-related techniques in order to expand the use of this unique and powerful experimental approach to materials research. Topics include: structure of reduced dimensional materials; magnetic materials; microscopy, topography and tomography; X-ray probes of solids; and materials characterization with X-ray absorption.
Book News Annotation:
Reports on materials characterization techniques that use synchrotron radiation at a time when third-generation synchrotron facilities are being constructed and brought online in the US and elsewhere, and when synchrotron-based spectroscopic techniques are being combined with increasingly high-resolution microscopy to understand chemical and electronic properties by examining ever smaller domains of materials. The 37 papers cover the structure of reduced dimensional materials, magnetic materials, microscopy, topography, tomography, X-ray probes of solids, and characterizing materials with X-ray absorption.
