Eagerly awaited, this second edition of a best-selling textcomprehensively describes from a modern perspective the basics ofx-ray physics as well as the completely new opportunities offeredby synchrotron radiation. Written by internationally acclaimedauthors, the style of the book is to develop the basic physicalprinciples without obscuring them with excessive mathematics.

The second edition differs substantially from the first edition,with over 30% new material, including: 

  • A new chapter on non-crystalline diffraction - designed toappeal to the large community who study the structure of liquids,glasses, and most importantly polymers and bio-molecules
  • A new chapter on x-ray imaging - developed in close cooperationwith many of the leading experts in the field
  • Two new chapters covering non-crystalline diffraction andimaging
  • Many important changes to various sections in the book havebeen made with a view to improving the exposition
  • Four-colour representation throughout the text to clarify keyconcepts
  • Extensive problems after each chapter 

There is also supplementary book material for this titleavailable online (ahref="http://booksupport.wiley.com/"http://booksupport.wiley.com/a).
