Abstract
The spatial resolution of the modern x-ray and neutron detectors is due to emission secondary particles. For fast x-rays this limit is connected with a range of secondary electrons and usually resolution is 20 microns; for neutrons, limit is connected with a range of (alpha) - particles and a resolution of 50 microns. It was shown that polycapillary Kumakhov optics can avoid this limit. We have carried out experiments on realization of this idea.
