This systematic and entire monograph is dedicated to parametric X-ray radiation (PXR). This radiation is generated by way of the movement of electrons within a crystal, wherein the emitted photons are diffracted by means of the crystal and the radiation depth significantly is dependent upon the parameters of the crystal constitution. these days PXR is the topic of diverse theoretical and experimental stories during the global. the 1st a part of the e-book is a theoretical therapy of PXR, which incorporates a new method of describe the radiation procedure in crystals. the second one half is a survey of PXR experimental effects and the potential purposes of PXR as a device for crystal constitution research and a resource of tunable X-ray radiation.
