ADVANCED SYNCHROTRON SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students will study the design, underlying physical principles, operation and applications of modern synchrotron light sources. Specifically, this subject will include an introduction 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.
