SYNCHROTRON SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Credit points: 15
In this subject you will review the key components of modern synchrotron light sources, including their design, under lying physical principles, operation and applications. You will be introduced to the production and properties of synchrotron light, storage ring systems found in modern synchrotron facilities, and the design and function of insertion devices, monochromators, X-ray optics and beam lines. A wide range of synchrotron- based experimental techniques and their applications will be explored including spectroscopy, microscopy and imaging techniques, diffraction and crystallography. You will develop data analysis skills and apply them to real world data from synchrotron experiments.
