Responds to the article, entitled `Comments on the use of asymmetric monochromators for x-ray diffraction on a synchrotron source,' published in the 1995 issue of the `Review of Scientific Instruments' journal. Corrected caption to a data which illustrates that the x-ray image formed by an asymmetrically cut silicon crystals.

    An x-ray monochromator for the range from 800 eV to 10 keV has been designed, constructed, and tested at LNLS. The high resolution is achieved by a four-crystal scheme where two nondispersive double crystals (or channel-cut crystals) are arranged in the dispersive configuration. Each double...

    A Si(220) double-crystal monochromator for the energy range 10-30 keV is presented. It will be used for EXAFS as well as powder diffraction measurements. To determine the requirements for this monochromator we looked, apart from mean considerations, at the requirements dictated by EXAFS in...

    A possible design for a spherical grating monochromator is based on the translation of the entrance slit in order to minimize the system aberrations during the wavelength scan. This configuration has been studied both analytically and by means of extended ray-tracing calculations and the design...

    YB[sub 66], a complex binary semiconducting compound with a cubic crystal structure and a lattice parameter of 23.44 Ã…, is potentially a very good candidate for monochromatization of soft x-ray synchrotron radiation. The features such as: a large interatomic spacing, lack of absorption edges...

    Performance of a 2-m grazing incidence vacuum ultraviolet (VUV)/soft x-ray monochromator was evaluated with silicon-carbide-based master grating of 1200 lines/mm groove density that was newly developed for use of undulator radiation. Incident power density on the grating surface was as high as...
