Paper Abstract

A grazing incidence x-ray interferometer design capable of micro-arcsecond level resolution is discussed. This practical design employs a Michelson Stellar interferometer approach to create x-ray interference fringes without the use of Wolter style optics or diffraction crystals. Design solutions accommodating alignment, vibration, and thermal constraints are reviewed. We present the development and demonstration of a working experiment along with tolerance studies, data analysis, and results.
