Paper Abstract

A novel type of vacuum window for application in the soft energy range is proposed, namely: a polycapillary structure with millions of individual channels. This structure has low vacuum conductance and is transparent to x-ray radiation. Vacuum and x-ray transmission properties are investigated both theoretically and experimentally. Possible applications are considered.
