About this Textbook

In this book the characteristics of synchrotron radiation, including insertion device radiation, are described and derived from first principles. The reader is first introduced to the subject in an intuitive way in order to gain familiarity with the underlying physical processes. A rigorous mathematical derivation of the theory then follows. Since the characteristics of synchrotron radiation are intimately connected with the parameters of the electron beam and its accelerator, a basic introduction to electron beam dynamics and accelerator design is included. The book is aimed at graduate students and scientists working with synchrotron radiation and is designed to serve both as a textbook and as a reference work. It includes numerous exercises, some with solutions.

From the reviews:

Praise for Helmut Wiedemann's Synchrotron Radiation

OPN

"This well organized book makes the complicated field of synchrotron radiation easy to understand. Each chapter includes a set of exercises; also the formulas and constants are compiled in appendices. This book could be used both as a textbook and as a reference."

"A key strength of this book is that subsequent to introducing the fundamentals, important physical processes that are implemented in technologies at synchrotron facilities are also described … . This book certainly capitalises on the need for an in-depth physics text in this field, because few books tend to specifically focus on synchrotron radiation. … this book will be a valuable resource that serves as both a reference for synchrotron users and as a text for courses at the honours or graduate level." (Jamie Quinton, The Physicist, Vol. 40 (4), 2003)

"Prof. Wiedemann brings his impressive expertise to this book through his confident and flowing writing style. The text is clear, understandable and pedagogical, and each chapter is almost complete in itself. … The pace is gentle and the reader is gradually introduced to the fundamental process of radiation from moving particles and subsequently eased into the basics of the generation and properties of synchrotron radiation … . I can say that I really did enjoy the experience of reading this book … ." (Dr. J. T. Costello, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 44 (6), 2003)
