X-ray echo spectroscopy, a counterpart of neutron spin-echo,
was recently introduced  to overcome limitations in spectral resolution
and weak signals of the traditional inelastic x-ray scattering (IXS)
probes. An image of a point-like x-ray source is defocused by a
dispersing system comprised of asymmetrically cut specially arranged
Bragg diffracting crystals. The defocused image is refocused into a
point (echo) in a time-reversal dispersing system. If the defocused
beam is inelastically scattered from a sample, the echo signal
acquires a spatial distribution, which is a map of the inelastic
scattering spectrum. The spectral resolution of the echo
spectroscopy does not rely on the monochromaticity of the x-rays,
ensuring strong signals along with a very high spectral resolution.
Particular schemes of x-ray echo spectrometers for 0.1-meV and 0.02-meV
ultra-high-resolution IXS applications (resolving power > 10^8)
with broadband ~5-13 meV dispersing systems will be presented
featuring more than 1000-fold signal enhancement. The technique is
general, applicable in different photon frequency domains.\\

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
