Paper Abstract

A simple model of X-Ray standing waves (XSW) formation in the slit between two polished parallel flat plates formed a planar X-Ray waveguide for the angle area restricted by the critical total reflection angle is developed. It is shown that the model is true for a case of the Bragg reflection. The conditions required for XSW to appear in the slit space are formulated and a slit size interval conforming to these conditions is evaluated. A mechanism of a XSW intensity decrease in a planar X-ray waveguide is proposed. The efficiency of the waveguide on a comparison base of the X- Ray forming system completed by a slit-cut superposition set with one equipped by a planar X-Ray waveguide is evaluated. Some recommendations on the application of the planar X-Ray waveguide in X-Ray structural and spectral studies of surface are presented.
