Capillary Optics for X-Ray Analysis

  • C. M. Dozier (a1), D. A. Newman (a2), L. V. Gilfrich (a2), R. K Freitag (a1) and J. P. Kirkland (a2)...


Capillary collimators have found a number of uses in fluorescence, diffraction and other x-ray fields. Most of these applications are realized with single, straight glass capillaries. Focussing of synchrotron x-radiation beams has been shown with tapered capillaries. In addition, numerous straight and bent capillaries, bundled into lens-like optics, offer experimenters many other possibilities for better use of the x-radiation from tubes, synchrotron radiation, and plasma sources or the x-ray intensity collected from samples.
