In this volume, the authors and editors have concentrated on the use of synchroton radiation which covers the electromagnetic spectrum which extends from about 10eV to 3keV in photon energy, and is basically the region where the radiation is strongly absorbed by atmospheric gases, and therefore has to make ample use of a high vacuum to transport the radiation to the work station, and where the presence of hard x-rays can cause extensive damage to both the optics and the targets used in the experimental rigs.
