In recent years technological advances in synchrotron and neutron sources, detectors, and computer hardware and software have allowed diffraction techniques to advance to a stage where data can be collected on a system with time. In this book for the first time reviews and research articlesare brought together covering the three branches of time-resolved diffraction X-ray, electron and neutron field, each being allocated a separate section of the book. Time-Resolved Diffraction covers all forms of matter (i.e. gases, liquids, amorphous solids, fibres and crystals) and does so within amultidisciplinary framework which takes in examples from molecular biology and chemistry, as well as techniques from physics and materials science. The time range of data collection covers ten orders, from the sub-pico domain at the quickest, to the kilosecond at the slowest. Research scientistsand postgraduates will find this book most useful as it is the only work available to provide an exposition of all areas of this developing field.
