12 August 1986 Theoretical Considerations in the Design of Multilayer X-Ray Optics
Author Affiliations +
There is increasing interest in the application of multilayers to figured x-ray optics. Two concepts in design approach are presented. The requirements for image formation with a multilayer device are discussed. A geometrical approach is used. The possible affect of multilayers on image quality are studied. Models for the reflectivity of x rays by multilayers are compared briefly.
