Synchrotron light science: From flux to brightness to coherence

One century after their discovery and first application to radiology, X-rays are finally achieving coherence. The potential impact on radiological imaging is extremely important, with significant social repercussions. These exciting developments are the final product of a revolution initiated in the late 1960's by Gianfranco Chiarotti and a few other pioneers, who first dreamed of using electron accelerators as superior X-rays sources, and then transformed this dream into reality.
