Paper Abstract

In this work a new CAD program, Po1yCAD, designed for X-ray tracing in polycapillary optics is described. As starting approach the simplest case of cylindrical polycapillary optics is presented. Using geometrical optics approximation, PoIyCAD allows any type of X-ray source such as an X-ray tube of finite beam dimensions as well as an astrophysical object in combination with polycapillary optical samples to be simulated. Here we present the results of a simulation in the case of two different sources: a point-source and two spheres as a three-dimensional source. The radiation distributions formed by the lenses of cylindrical shapes on a screen located at various distances are discussed. The agreement with the results earlier published validates Po1yCAD results.
