Abstract

Nested flat plates bent into the Kirkpatrick-Baez parabolic geometry and supported at discrete points are one means of obtaining large area grazing incidence x-ray optics with good angular resolution. A method for optimizing the on-axis resolution combining finite element and ray trace techniques with selective masking is presented. The optimally determined supported point location technique can lead to greatly reduced in situ labor costs.
