Polycapillary optics can be designed for a wide variety of x-ray applications. They have been used as focusing collectors for x-ray astronomy, to produce large-area collimated beams for wafer analysis and to provide small focused beams for protein crystallography with low-power x-ray sources. They are also being developed for a number of medical applications, including the removal of Compton scattering with the resultant improvement in contrast and resolution in mammography, the production of… CONTINUE READING
