Paper Abstract

An isoangle is the locus of the points of incidence for rays with the same grazing angle of incidence from a point source. An isobragg is the locus of the points of intersection with a surface of reflected rays with the same wavelength. The geometrical and spectral radiant flux collection characteristics of toroidally shaped reflectors are explored by studying the evolving patterns of isoangles and isobraggs as the form of the reflecting surface changes. The analysis is applied to x-ray multilayered structures which reflect according to Bragg's Law. This investigation leads to the design considerations for optimizing the reflected flux with increased wavelength resolution.
