Paper Abstract

We present a new high-precision and cost-efficient method of manufacturing aspheric crystals and pseudo-crystals. The concept including calculations, limits of precision, and manufacturing details is discussed. The advantages of this method are illustrated by the application and use of a Johansson bent quartz crystal in an x-ray sequential spectrometer. The resolving power of the spectrometer is compared with the Siemens SRS 300 and the Fisons/ARL 8420 by a comparative measurement of uranium ore. The comparison involves the detection of 0.006 Rb (K(alpha) ) present as background. Options for future investigations and applications of this method are discussed.
