Sources of Spectral Photon Radiation

  • Hans-Joachim Lewerenz
Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 157)


The chapter treats the various experimental methods to generate high-energy photons from accelerated and relativistic charges, relevant for applications in chemistry, biology, material science and physics which will be treated in Chaps.
