Paper Abstract

A glass capillary with inner metal coating is proposed as a high efficiency, soft x-ray optic for medical applications. Based on results of theoretical calculation, for x-ray radiated from conventional x-ray tube, nickel is chosen as a coating material. A nickel-coated capillary is fabricated by using electroless deposition and the focusing and collimating effects are observed from measurement of transmission efficiency of soft x-ray.
