Basic X-Ray Scattering for Soft Matter

Oxford University Press

This first chapter is concerned with general aspects of x-rays. In the first section these will be positioned in a broad context. Subsequently, the generation of x-rays is discussed in terms of both conventional laboratory sources and modern synchrotrons. Next, the basics of x-ray scattering will be considered, first for a single electron, then for an x-ray beam incident on a composite sample of atoms or molecules. This is followed by a discussion of some general properties of x-rays as electromagnetic radiation: absorption, reflection, and coherence. The chapter finishes by comparing x-ray, neutron, and light scattering.

Keywords:   x-ray generation, synchrotron, single-electron scattering, plane-wave scattering, scattering vector, x-ray absorption, x-ray optics, x-ray coherence
