We present a small investigation of the possibility of improving the bandwidth and associated integrated reflectivity of multilayers at 8 keV. We investigate two multilayer material combinations: Ni/C and W/Si, and 3 different types of multilayer designs: periodic, linearly graded, and a-periodic. The optimizations are performed using a simulated annealing routine and we find that improvements of up to 42% may be obtained in the case where one considers a 10% bandwidth, and only 10% for a 5% bandwidth.
