Abstract

We simulate a proof-of-principle design of a wavelength dispersive, parallel spectrometer for use in resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS). The instrument relies on a multiple-channel reflection zone plate (RZP) array, enabling the recording of fluorescence spectra from an acceptance angle of 18  arcmin×19  arcmin with a mainly source-size-limited resolving power of (0.22.6)×104 over an energy range of 21 eV at the L-edge of Fe around 715 eV. An optimal two-dimensional signal readout preserves the spectral resolution to a large extent for widely open exit apertures of 50  mm2. The geometrical parameters are matched to the PEAXIS end station at the BESSY II synchrotron facility, and relaxed RZP line densities of <9×102  mm1 assure the technical feasibility. An error budget estimation with respect to fabrication and alignment tolerances provides the link to real, RZP-based RIXS experiments in the future.
