Review on this book:

"The author set out to provide a survey of the field of X-ray line profile analysis (XLPA) for the materials sciences.
The book covers basic and advanced XLPA, and attempts to fill in the gaps in the current literature.
From my perspective, the author has done a reasonably good job."

Joseph D. Ferrara, Ph.D., Chief Science Officer, Rigaku (published in the newsletter "The Bridge", Issue 12, June, 2014)


This is the only monograph in the market which summarizes the existing knowledge in the field of X-ray line profile analysis. A retired colleague of the author, who was unable to write the book, tried to hinder its publication due to his envy. This colleague sent false accusations about the author to the publisher (IGI-Global, USA). The author is grateful to the publisher for recognizing this situation and publishing this book.

(Ez a könyv ebben a témában az egyetlen összefoglaló mű, ezért hiánypótló az irodalomban. A szerző egyik nyugdíjas kollégája, mivel képtelen volt megírni a könyvet, irigységből rágalmaival a kiadást megpróbálta megakadályozni. A szerző hálás a kiadónak, hogy ezt felismerve a könyvet megjelentette.)
