Paper Abstract

Grazing incidence micromirrors of ellipsoidal or parabolic shape with apertures below 1 mm have numerous potential applications in many areas of applied physics, molecular biology and material research. One of the most important applications of such optics is in its combination with microfocus x-ray generator. Extremely intense collimated or focused high-quality x-ray beams from tabletop equipment can be obtained in this way. It is shown that though developed primarily for macromolecular crystallography, this combination gave excellent results also in other fields of science and technology. Computer ray-tracing and experimental data characterizing mirror and x-ray beam parameters in typical applications are presented.
