Dynamical Theory of X-Ray Diffraction


Oxford University Press

This chapter is devoted to the applications of dynamical diffraction to X-ray optics. After a brief description of X-ray sources (tubes and synchrotron radiation), it gives the principle of the various types of monochromators and of multiple-crystal beam conditioning. It then describes the different devices for beam focusing optics (mirrors, multilayers, curved crystals, Fresnel zone plates, Bragg–Fresnel lenses, refractive lenses, and X-ray waveguides). The last two sections concern the principle and applications of X-ray interferometers (moiré topography, measurement of indices of refraction and anomalous dispersion factors, metrology) and X-ray phase contrast imaging.

Keywords:   X-ray optics, monochromators, synchrotron radiation, mirrors, zone plates, refractive lenses, focusing optics, X-ray interferometers, imaging, phase contrast
