Paper Abstract

The development of glass microcapillary arrays by Kumakhov and co-workers in the Soviet Union suggests that it is possible to construct novel devices for concentrating and focussing X-ray beams. Hypothetical focussing concentrators made up of capillary arrays have been configured to operate over a broad range of X-ray energy and its characteristics have been studied with a Monte Carlo ray tracing code. These modeling results indicate that the concentrators would have significant effective area up to 100 keV while their dimensions are similar to conventional grazing incidence telescopes that operate in the soft X-ray band.
