This paper reports the design, installation and testing of a set of multilayer confocal mirrors in a side-by-side arrangement, built to increase the intensity from a molybdenum rotating-anode X-ray source. Ray-tracing experiments were performed in order to evaluate the best design parameters for the system, which are shown to be a side-by-side configuration of 100 mm length. Measurements of the primary beam intensity show an increase by a factor of approximately five. Comparative data collections were performed which highlight significant enhancements in the derived crystal structure, arising from the increased intensity of the primary beam.

Abstract

This paper reports the design, installation and testing of a set of multilayer confocal mirrors in a side-by-side arrangement, built to increase the intensity from a molybdenum rotating-anode X-ray source. Ray-tracing experiments were performed in order to evaluate the best design parameters for the system, which are shown to be a side-by-side configuration of 100 mm length. Measurements of the primary beam intensity show an increase by a factor of approximately five. Comparative data collections were performed which highlight significant enhancements in the derived crystal structure, arising from the increased intensity of the primary beam.
