    X-ray optics. X-ray optics is the branch of optics that manipulates X-rays instead of visible light. It deals with focusing and other ways of manipulating the X-ray beams for research techniques such as X-ray crystallography, X-ray fluorescence, small-angle X-ray scattering, X-ray microscopy, X-ray phase-contrast imaging, X-ray astronomy etc.

This requires advanced x-ray optics, which will be discussed in this chapter. X-ray optics differ from optics for visible light because the refractive index is very close to unity, and because absorption plays a large role for all optical components.

Especially in the soft x-ray range, this makes conventional refractive optics impractical. Purchase X-Ray Optics and X-Ray Microanalysis - 1st Edition.

However, the typical performance of the electroformed mirrors for x-ray astronomy is limited to about 10 arcsec HPD because of their figure error.

Branch of astronomy that uses X-ray observation X-rays start at ~ nm and extend across the electromagnetic spectrum to ~8 nm, over which the Earth's atmosphere is opaque. X-ray astronomy is an observational branch of astronomy which deals with the study of X-ray observation and detection from astronomical objects.

X-Ray Astronomy Group MTSSP Boulder Apr Active Figure Control • Large normal-incidence telescopes (ground-based & JWST) use active optics, BUT required mirror surface area is a couple of orders of magnitude larger than the aperture area.

Focusing X-ray telescopes have been the most important factor in X-ray astronomy’s ascent to equality with optical and radio astronomy. They are the prime tool for studying thermal emission from very high temperature regions, non-thermal synchrotron radiation from very high energy particles in magnetic fields and inverse Compton scattering of lower energy photons into the X-ray by:   Polycapillary X-ray optics can be used to increase the signal-to-noise ratio by focusing photons onto a small energy dispersive detector.

Two optics, both designed for x-ray astronomy, have been built and tested as collimating optics with a microfocus x-ray source for x-ray energies up to 70 keV and as focusing optics with parallel x-rays up to.

Ray Optics and Optical Instruments this case is to be taken as normal to the tangent to surface at the point of incidence. That is, the normal is along the radius, the line joining the centre of curvature of the mirror to the point of incidence.
