Did you ever wonder 'What the heck is a photon, anyway?' Well, this question quickly gets you into pretty deep waters. Not only do you need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, you need to understand how they fit together into a marvelous theory called 'quantum electrodynamics'. These webpages won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a little nudge in the right direction.

The present book attempts to fill a need for a fundamental textbook which explains the optical properties of solids. It is meant to explain a number of important concepts rather than present a complete survey of experimental data.

In photonic circuits photons play the dominant role and they transfer the optical data. With the growth of technology, a new area started to grow as photonic crystals which now play an important role in designing and manufacturing compact devices ...

This book is intended to give overviews of the relevant X-ray scattering techniques, particularly about inelastic X-ray scattering, elastic scattering, grazing-incidence small-angle X-ray scattering, small-angle X-ray scattering, and more.
