Paper Abstract

A thin crystal with a thickness of approximately micrometers makes it possible to disperse incident x rays in a certain energy band, like a grating. We report a current performance of this new spectroscopic device. We show that Ti K (alpha) 1 and K (alpha) 2 lines are simultaneously diffracted to different directions making a two peaks. The experiment shows the energy resolving power of (E/(Delta) E > 3000) over approximately 24 eV range. A brief comparison will be presented among this thin crystal, gratings and Bragg crystals.
