Abstract

The total reflection of x-rays is applied to focusing the rays issuing from a fine slit. A method of computing the geometrical optics of surfaces of bent beams is given; it is shown that under certain conditions lateral aberrations for practical apertures are of the order of one micron or less. These results are confirmed by experiment.
