Paper Abstract

The paper discusses status of the polycapillary optics and its perspectives for the nearest future. Modern level of the polycapillary optics technology permits to speak about possible implementation of a 'laboratory synchrotron' based on a combination of small micro-focus x-ray tubes with (10 ÷ 100) W power only and optics. In this instance, at the lens focal spot having a size of several microns, a flux of the order of 107 photon/sec μm2 is obtained. After a half-lens, it is possible to obtain quasi-parallel monochromatic flux with 1010 photon/sec mm2 density. These parameters aer comparable with those of mid-generation synchrotrons. On the basis of this optics, the Institute for Roentgen Optics has created new generations of compact x-ray fluorescent spectrometers, diffractometers, comparators etc.
