X-ray and Neutron Small Angle Scattering

  • Bernard Jacrot
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 45)


When radiation (light, electrons, x-rays, neutrons) passes through matter the inhomogeneities of “density” induce its scattering. This is the phenomenon which makes objects visible through different optical properties from that of the surrounding medium. This observation implies for quantitative analysis the precise definition of density, optical properties and inhomogeneities.
