Polycapillary Xray Optics (PXO)

Polycapillary Xray optics are arrays of small hollow fibers. X-rays are guided down these curved and tapered tubes by multiple reflections in a manner analogous to the way fiber optics guide light. They differ from single-bore capillaries and X ray mirrors in that the focusing or collecting effects come from the overlap of the beams from thousands of channels, rather than from a few surfaces.

Generally, this results in relatively efficient collection, especially from large divergent sources such as conventional X ray tubes,but does not produce submicron beam spot sizes.

The product is still experimental, final result may vary from designed value. And we need below information to proceed an order.
