Product description

Review

"The region of the electromagnetic spectrum covered by this excellently written and produced book has only become available to exploitation over the last couple of decades or so...every researcher, teacher and student involved with the generation, manipulation or applications of electromagnetic radiation in this part of the spectrum should make space on their desk (not the bookshelf, since it won't spend much time there!) for this wonderful addition to the literature." Contemporary Physics

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good textbook 5 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I took the class taught by the author at UC-Berkeley while he was finishing up this text (I also proofread a couple of the chapters as part of the class - you can find my name and the names of my classmates in the acknowledgements).

The text is very clearly written. An undergraduate physics / engineering level of understanding of electromagnetics and quantum mechanics is sufficient background for most the textbook. Most of the calculations are done semi-classically which helps for people not well versed in quantum mechanics. It also serves nicely as a reference text.

Topics covered include:
- Grazing incidence optics
- Normal incidence multi-layer mirrors
- Synchrotron radiation
- Cyclotrons, wigglers and undulators
- Plasma physics with applications to EUV and X-ray sources
- Fresnel zone plates
- Coherence
- EUV and X-ray lithograpy
- ...

The textbook stands alone nicely ... you do not need to constantly look up results in other sources and texts.

The textbook also contains a wealth of reference materials (several appendices of atomic data for X-ray transitions, cross sections, mathematical tables, ...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Taken from Contemporary Physics (London) 21 Oct. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
`... excellently written and produced book ... David Attwood is a respected teacher and renowned researcher in all of the topics covered in this book, and is to be congratulated on its timely publication ... there is no doubt in my mind that it will very quickly become a primary source for beginning graduate students (and high level undergraduates) and experienced researchers alike ... Unusually, I cannot think of any way in which the book could be improved. It is comprehensive and enjoyable to read, the figures are illustrative and clearly drawn and the mathematics is at an appropriate level for the intended readership ... it will serve as [an] important reference source as well as a teacher's and researcher's handbook ... I shall certainly be using this book in my future teaching and recommending it to advanced students.' Alan Michette, Contemporary Physics
5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent book! 31 Oct. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I lent this book from the library in our institute, and this book is very suitable to us, who do research with Synchrotron Radiation in the region of soft X-ray. Many directions of research for soft X-ray are included in this book.
I can't afford it because it is very expensive for me, although I like it very much!
