We proposed a split and delay optics setup with Si(220) crystals combined with Kirkpatric-Baez mirror optics for x-ray pump-x-ray probe experiments at x-ray free-electron laser facilities. A prototype of the split-delay optics and its alignment procedure were tested at BL29XUL of SPring-8. The horizontal focal profile, measured via double-beam operation, showed good spatial overlap between the split beams with an FWHM of 100 nm, near the diffraction limit at 10 keV. High throughputs of the split-delay optics of 12% (upper) and 7.4% (lower) were obtained. The throughputs can be improved to 30% and 20% by optimizing the upper and lower central energy, respectively.
