Paper Abstract

The replication technology originally developed for astronomical X-ray optics can be also effectively applied for laboratory mirrors with small apertures, even below few mm. Grazing incidence micromirrors of ellipsoidal or parabolic shape with apertures below 1 mm have numerous potential applications in many areas of applied physics, molecular biology and material research, including synchrotron. One of the most important applications of such optics is in its combination with microfocus X-ray generator. Extremely intense collimated or focused high-quality X-ray beams from tabletop equipment can be obtained in this way. It is shown that though developed primarily for macromolecular crystallography, this combination gave excellent results also in other fields of science and technology. Computer raytracing and experimental data characterizing mirror and X-ray beam parameters in typical applications are also presented.
