We introduce a new design of tilted linear zone plates, which are named tapered tilted linear (TTL) zone plates. The purpose of the design is to increase efficiency while at the same time keeping the focal plane perpendicular to the optical path. In order to accomplish this, the zone radius and number of zones must become a function of position along the structure. Simulation work described in this paper shows improved optical performance over regular tilted linear zone plates.
