Paper Abstract

We have designed and built a cylindrical grazing incidence monochromator (mirror) for 1.54Å CuKa x-rays. W/C multilayers were deposited onto thin sheets of mica and then bent into cylindrical shapes. The favorable properties of mica, including monolayer smoothness and malleability when used in very thin sheets, provide an ideal substrate material. X-Ray diffraction measurements indicate a multilayer d spacing of 1.07 nm. Such a small d spacing multilayer can be used in cylindrical optics with focal lengths of 50 cm or less. Experimental results using the cylindrical multilayer optic are compared to code predictions.
