X-rays
The electric field
E(r,t) is given as
a cosine function.
E (r , t )  cos( kr  t )
X-rays
In formal derivations the
vector potential A is used.
The electric field E(r,t) is
directly related to the vector
potential A(r,t).

Interaction of x-rays with matter 1
The photon moves towards the atom
Interaction of x-rays with matter 1
The photon meets an electron and is annihilated
Interaction of x-rays with matter 1
The electron gains the energy of the photon
and is turned into a blue electron.
Interaction of x-rays with matter 1
The blue electron (feeling lonely) leaves the atom
and scatters of neighbors (cf. EXAFS)
or escapes from the sample (cf. XPS)
Interaction of x-rays with matter 1
The probability of photon annihilation determines
the intensity of the transmitted photon beam

Interaction of x-rays with matter
HINT(1) describes the interaction of the vector field A on
the momentum operator p of an electron, or in other
words the electric field E acting on the electron
moments.
The momentum operator p is given as the electron
charge q times the displacement operator r.

HINT(2) describes the second order interaction of the
vector field A.
This gives rise to the elastic scattering of the x-rays by
the electrons.
This is the basis for x-ray diffraction (XRD) and small
angle x-ray scattering (SAXS)
