Based on a course of lectures delivered at Columbia University by Nobel laureate H. A. Lorentz, this texte remains remarkably modern. Its outstanding discussion of general principles and experimental facts keep it vital.

This book is intended to give overviews of the relevant X-ray scattering techniques, particularly about inelastic X-ray scattering, elastic scattering, grazing-incidence small-angle X-ray scattering, small-angle X-ray scattering, and more.

What the heck is a photon, anyway? You need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, and to understand how they fit together. This text won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a nudge in the right direction.

Optics and interferometry with matter waves is the art of coherently manipulating the translational motion of particles like atoms. Coherent atom optics is an extension of techniques that were developed for manipulating internal quantum states.
