Professor Andrew Boothroyd Publishes New Textbook

  • Book cover for Principles of Neutron Scattering from Condensed Matter by Andrew Boothroyd
27 July, 2020

Tutorial Fellow in Physics Professor Andrew Boothroyd has recently published a new textbook, Principles of Neutron Scattering from Condensed Matter, with Oxford University Press.

Neutron scattering is arguably the most powerful technique available for looking inside materials and seeing what the atoms are doing. This new textbook provides a comprehensive account of the many different ways neutrons are being used to investigate the behaviour of atoms and molecules in bulk matter. It provides a modern and pedagogical treatment of the principles behind the various neutron scattering techniques that are used at facilities around the world.

The book is intended to be used as a course textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate training courses, or as a "one-stop-shop" for anyone wanting to learn about modern neutron scattering techniques and their applications.

Professor Boothroyd leads a group within the Department of Physics that carries out research into novel electronic, magnetic and superconducting materials, with emphasis on emergent phenomena associated with strong electronic correlations.
