26 September 2013 Optical and multilayer design for the first Kirkpatrick-Baez optics for x-ray diagnostic at NIF
Author Affiliations +
At the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) we are designing, developing and testing multiple Kirkpatrick-Baez (KB) optics to be added to the suite of x-ray diagnostic instruments for the National Ignition Facility (NIF). Each optic consists of four KB channels made of spherically super-polished x-ray substrates. These substrates are multilayer-coated to allow steep grazing angle geometry and wavelength filtering. These optics are customized for different experiments and will provide NIF with an alternative x-ray imaging technique to pinholes, improving both resolution and photon throughput. With this manuscript we describe KB optic requirements, specifications, optical and multilayer designs.
