By Jens Als-Nielsen & Des McMorrow. Geared towards final-year undergraduates, first-year research students, and professionals, this book covers the basic physical principles underlying the production of X-rays, their interaction with matter, and also how these properties are used in a range of applications. It develops the basic physical principles without obscuring them with too much mathematics. An appendix lists MATLAB files used to create many of the figures in the book.
