Highlights of this Course
These lectures demonstrate the high precision analysis using synchrotron radiation, one of the most sophisticated techniques developed during the past 20 years.
The aim of this course is to demonstrate the applications of synchrotron radiation in high precision imaging technology, and consequently, its application non-destructive elemental analyses, chemical-state analyses and imaging (distribution) of the elements within small areas. The cell microanalysis is a good example of these applications, while other applications of similar nature can be extended to a wide range of engineering fields. The basics for understanding and applications of synchrotron radiation are the same as those of x-ray spectrometry, which has been well developed during the twentieth century and is widely applied to various fields of science and technology, including biology and medicine. What makes a synchrotron radiation x-ray source very useful for analytical works, especially for biological applications, are the very high brilliance and energy variability of the x-ray beam.
