1 February 1994 Expanded beam x-ray optics calibration facility at the Daresbury Synchrotron

A facility for the calibration of X-ray Space Instrumentation has been established for the Daresbury Synchrotron. The facility provides a continuously tunable beam with (Delta) (lambda) /(lambda) <EQ 10-4 in the energy range from approximately 5 kev to more than 20 kev. At selected energies in the interval from 6 kev to 12 kev, the facility features a 1D sheet of X-rays, approximately 200 mm wide, obtained from an extremely asymmetric reflection in large perfect crystals of Si. The beam is collimated to < 20 arcsec. Data from tests using large (approximately 250 mm long) beam expander crystals in the energy range from 6 - 12 kev are presented. The planned calibration of the two X-ray telescopes (XSPECT/SODART and JET-X) will be described.
