Atomic Physics Research with Synchrotron Radiation

  • Bernd Crasemann

Part of the Physics of Atoms and Molecules book series (PAMO)


Two decades after the first use of synchrotron radiation in atomic spectroscopy, and nine after the discovery of X rays, we stand at the threshold of major advances in facilities for the production of synchrotron light that are certain to engender a great increase in its use for the exploration of atomic inner shells. This appears to be a good time, therefore, for some retrospection and a survey, albeit brief and incomplete, of applications of synchrotron light in atomic and molecular physics.
