Convex Parallel Beam Optics

Convex curved parallel beam multilayer optics of various geometries for the generation of a compressed monochromatic parallel beam in one dimension

Outstanding Feature

Increase of the parallel beam photon flux in combination with a focusing optic by reduction of beam width b compared to conventional parallel beam optics.
