"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
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
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
- 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, ...)
p.s. please note that there is a web-site by the author with the actual lectures available for watching absolutely free
I can't afford it because it is very expensive for me, although I like it very much!
