As the title suggests, this book commemorates the 100th anniversary of the discovery of x-rays by Wilhelm Rontgen in November 1895. This discovery revolutionized many areas of 20th-century science, not just medicine. While everyone knows of the use of x-rays in medicine, airport security and x-ray astronomy, most people are unaware of the wide range of use to which x-rays are put. This volume covers historical aspects as well as discussing modern, up-to-date techniques and applications. All key areas of x-ray science are included, such as diffraction, spectroscopy, microscopy, lithography and astronomy concluding with predictions for the next 100 years. Also included are: contributions from scientists giving a wide coverage of x-ray science; non-technical coverage; an extensive glossary to explain unavoidable technical terms; illustrations and line drawings.
