Diffraction Optics of Complex-Structured Periodic Media by Vladimir Vladimir I.

Probing matter with beams of photons, neutrons and electrons provides the main source of information about both the microscopic and macroscopic structure of materials. This is particularly true of media, such as crystals and liquid crystals, that have a periodic structure. This book discusses the in...
