In this paper, we will give first the description of a versatile material analyzer for x-ray crystallographic and compositional analyses. We will describe how we calculate and elaborate glass capillaries; we will describe some important parameters of the total reflection of x-rays: focusing, transparency, gain and divergence. Our first results concern a compositional study of CdZnTe crystals with a n x-ray beam diameter of 10 micrometers and we will show the variation of Zn on the surface of such a crystal. Another possibility of this device is x-ray microtopography of a film or of a wafer. We show, on one hand the way to find in classical centers by Laue micropatterns on the other hand we could establish a Bragg reflection pattern like those obtained in classical x-ray surface topography. In some heat treatments we can see so-called texture effects. We have also on our device the possibility to see microtexture effects in a way which can be compared to the Seeman-Bohlin experiment. The compositional experiments were also tested by SEM in order to see how these two devices complete each other. We can notice in some studies the advantages of x-rays because photons are less destructive than electrons.
