Optical design of hard x-ray beamlines can be accurately performed through ray tracing simulation technique. We describe here the way and the tools we use at SOLEIL to develop hard x-ray beamlines such as PSICHÉ, which is a wiggler beamline performing diffraction and tomography experiments from 20 to 50 keV. This beamline is made of two focusing stages, one with a long vertical focusing mirror together with a sagittal focusing crystal monochromator to gain a spot of 100x50 μm and the other one applying a set of graded multilayer KB mirrors to reach 10x10 μm spot. Ray tracing simulations are performed with SpotX, which provides optical properties of the beamline taking into account thermal load on optics, surface polishing defects from the profilometer measurements.
