Paper Abstract

Polycapillary and doubly curved crystal x-ray optics have gained broad acceptance and are now being used in a wide variety of applications. Beginning as optics integrated into research setups, they were then used to enhance the performance of existing x-ray analytical instruments and are now widely used as essential components in x-ray spectrometers and diffractometers designed to utilize their capabilities. Development of compact x-ray sources, matched to the optic input requirements have allowed large reduction in the size, power, and weight of x-ray systems which are now resulting in development of compact x-ray instruments for portable, remote, or in-line analytical tools for new applications in industry, science, or medicine.
