The development of coherent radiation sources for sub-angstrom wavelengths - i.e. in the hard X-ray and gamma-ray range -
This book examines the radiation formed in a crystalline undulator. It shows that under certain conditions, such a device emits intensive spontaneous monochromatic radiation and may even reach the coherence of laser light sources.
