Title: Graded Multilayers For Synchrotron Optics

Abstract

I will give a comprehensive overview on the use of multilayers as optical elements on 3rd generation synchrotron sources, in particular at the ESRF. In most reflecting multilayer optics, a synchrotron beam hits the optical surface under varying incident angles along the footprint of the element. Therefore, the multilayer period generally requires a lateral thickness gradient to keep the Bragg condition fulfilled over the full length of the optics. This gradient can be considerable, is typically non-linear, and has to be realized with a precision better than the width of the Bragg reflection. In particular cases, additional depth gradients or non-periodic structures may be applied. I will discuss the basic design ideas, the fabrication scheme, and the principal applications of graded multilayers at ESRF beamlines. A central part will deal with focusing devices based on the Kirkpatrick-Baez technology and their performance.
