Optimization of tapered capillary optics for use at the Microfocus Beamline (ID13) at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF)


Using a detailed 3-dimensional ray-tracing code for the modeling of capillary optics the optimum dimensions of linearly tapered glass capillaries have been calculated for the Microfocus beamline (JD13) of the ESRF. The aim of the calculations was to further improve the performance of this optical element which is used routinely at ID13 as a post-focusing… (More)
