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 articles are 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 a multidisciplinary 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 scientists and 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.

`...contains an excellent chapter on the realization of single-pulse Laue diffraction and shortcuts to 100 fs resolution using the ESRF (the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility)...There is a definitive chapter on TRED, a technique which should help give a more complete view of the coherent nuclear dynamics of laser-excited systems and a good review of time resolution applied to RHEED and LEED -- activities still in their infancy.' Journal of Synchrotron Radiation (1998), vol. 5 `...it is...a useful addition to the research library with material which would be equally at home in a series on laser science and its applications.' Journal of Synchrotron Radiation (1998), vol. 5
