Abstract

A parabolic, multilayer x-ray mirror, which can be used with a general lab-based x-ray source, was designed and fabricated. A glass substrate for the mirror was fabricated. Its surface was determined by following the rotation of a parabolic curve and was polished precisely. On the substrate surface, six W/Al bilayers were deposited to form the multilayer mirror. The effects of the mirror on x-ray images were investigated based on the calculated modulation transfer function (MTF) and image intensity values. Higher MTF and intensity values of an x-ray image were obtained using the mirror.
