Bundles of hollow glass capillaries can be tapered to produce quasi-focusing x-ray optics. These optics are known
as Kumakhov lenses. These optics are interesting for lab-based sources because they can be used to collimate
and concentrate x-rays originating from a point, such as a laser focus or an electron-beam focus in a microtube.
