In this review we discuss and demonstrate three new phenomena connected with the binding and propagation of X-rays on curved surfaces. The first involves X-ray propagation, over very large distances, of surface bound modes, made possible by the extrinsic curvature of the surface. Under proper conditions transmission of the ground state alone can be achieved. The second effect involves strong dynamical diffraction that surface bound modes can experience when the surface contains a periodic modulation. The last effect is the in-surface deflection of surface bound X-rays induced by the intrinsic, rather than extrinsic, curvature of the surface. We briefly discuss some of the implications of these discoveries. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
