Paper Abstract

A new type of sensitive X-ray polarimeter is proposed, based on the measurement of the azimuthal anysotropy of the angular distribution of the photoelectrons produced by photoabsorption of the infalling X-ray photons in the luminescent X-ray converter. The latter is a 3(2)-dimensional structure consisting of the luminescent (scintillating) two-component elements - thin fibers or films, the diameters (thickness) of which is smaller as the penetration depth of the photoelectrons. The device can be used at the hot plasma diagnostics in space-based astrophysical experiments and in laboratory.
