X-ray fiber optics are bundles of hollow tubes which transmit x rays by multiple grazing incidence reflections. They provide a means of shielding XUV and x-ray instruments used for plasma diagnostics of magnetic confinement devices from the adverse effects of energetic neutrons and neutron induced gamma radiation. We have designed and built x-ray transmitting fiber optic bundles for instruments covering the ranges 60 to 200 eV and 3 to 10 keV. We have measured the performance of such bundles in the laboratory at 280 eV and at 6.4, 8, an 10 keV and compared it with simple computer models of x-ray fiber transmission.
