MONOCHROMATORS FOR X-RAY SYNCHROTRON RADIATION
A review of the characteristics of X-ray monochromators used at different synchrotron radiation sources is presented and the theoretical instruments necessary to calculate the diffraction properties of both perfect and curved crystals are discussed. After a description of the source properties, the reflection of X-rays by optical surfaces and the optics of curved crystals monochromators are considered. Then, the graphic methods used for synchrotron radiation X-ray optics and the optical systems adopted in different experimental apparatuses are reviewed. Afterwards, the basic concepts of dynamic theory of X-ray diffraction by perfect crystals and the modifications induced in the diffraction properties by bending the crystals are discussed. Finally, a physical model useful to predict the main diffraction characteristics of bent monochromators is described and used for the interpretation of some experimental results.
