The Science and Technology of Undulators and Wigglers

James A. Clarke


Synchrotron radiation sources are now used routinely by thousands of research scientists and engineers throughout the world to perform experiments in biology, physics, materials science, chemistry, and so on. The very best of these sources are based upon the use of undulator and wiggler insertion devices that can enhance the output intensity by many orders of magnitude. This book brings together both a detailed step by step description of the radiation properties from these devices and an explanation of the practical realization of actual devices using available magnet technologies. The book i ... More
