X-Ray Compton Scattering

Editor and Contributer:Malcolm Cooper

With the development of potent x-ray sources at many synchrotron laboratories worldwide, Compton scattering has become a standard tool for studying electron densities in materials. This book provides condensed matter and materials physicists with an authoritative, up-to-date, and very accessible account of the Compton scattering method, leading to a fundamental understanding of the electronic and magnetic properties of solid materials, both elements and compounds.
