Paper Abstract

The four kinds of crystals; RAP(001), Si(111), LiF(220) and the Co/C multilayer on the super polished Si(111) crystals, together make up the objective crystal spectrometer OXS. They cover a wide energy range extending from 0.16 eV to 8 keV. A study of crystal reflectivity and energy resolution including measurements on RAP, LiF and Co/C and a calculation of Si crystals in the respective wavelength bands has been performed and the results are presented.
