Summary
Synchrotron radiation is the name given to the radiation which occurs when charged particles are accelerated in a curved path or orbit. Classically, any charged particle which moves in a curved path or is accelerated in a straight-line path will emit electromagnetic radiation. Various names are given to this radiation in different contexts. Thus circular particle accelerators are called synchrotrons, this is where charged particles are accelerated to very high speeds and the radiation is referred to as synchrotron radiation. Suitable for a summer short course or one term lecture series this text introduces the subject, starting with some historical background then covering basic concepts such as flux, intensity, brilliance, emittance and Liouville's theorem. The book then covers the properties of synchrotron radiation, insertion devices, beamlines and monochromators before finishing with an introduction to free electron lasers and an overview of the most common techniques and applications of this technology

Biographical or historical data
Jan-Erik Rubensson's research focuses on the refinement of methods related to soft x-ray inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS), and he is a spokesperson for VERITAS, the RIXS-dedicated beamline at the MAX IV laboratory. He investigates non-linear scattering processes at x-ray free-electron lasers, primarily via an imaging spectrometer at the European XFEL in Hamburg. He is responsible for the Mechanics KF and the Synchrotron Radiation courses.
