Credit points: 15
In this subject, you will be introduced to the optics and applications of X-rays, with an emphasis on imaging and synchrotron-source related applications. The major topics that you will encounter include propagation of X-rays in free space, partially coherent fields, interactions of X-rays with matter, X-ray sources, X-ray optics, and synchrotron based applications of X-rays. You will develop advanced problem-solving skills within the weekly problem-solving classes, whereby sophisticated techniques will be modelled in solving practical and computational problems in X-ray physics.
