Paper Abstract

We describe simulations and experiments with straight and tapered glass capillaries for 5 keV - 25 keV x rays. Effects of tilting capillaries on the exiting pattern of x rays have been investigated in experiments and simulations. The simulations have employed two dimensional ray tracing. We have also used simulations to investigate effects of source-to-capillary distance and of source size on transmitted x ray flux for straight and tapered capillaries. A system using x-ray microbeams for spatially resolved mapping of microstructure, strain, and composition is also briefly described.
