Description

A synchrotron is a complex machine that produces highly specialised light. This light, known as synchrotron radiation, can be used by scientists in a number of emerging fields. This program gives a well-illustrated introduction to this fascinating machine under the following headings: * Applications * Basic design * Synchrotron radiation * Interaction with materials Part1 (theory) Part2 (results) The physics behind the machine, including: electromagnetic radiation, diffraction, x-ray scattering and basic equations such as F = evB and Bragg's law are clearly introduced in plain English with graphics and visual metaphors. A must for teachers introducing this area of study into their curriculum!
