Focusing X-ray Optics and Their Applications

Call for Papers

The X-rays can be focused by their interaction with matter. There are several focusing X-ray optics which can provide a microbeam or a quasi-parallel beam. Such optics may be divided into main categories such as diffractive optics, refractive optics, and reflective optics. Focusing X-ray optics have played an important role in the X-ray technology, such as X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence, X-ray absorption fine structure, X-ray imaging, X-ray lithography, and so on. This important role of the focusing X-ray optics will be stronger with the development of the X-ray technology.

We invite authors to submit original research articles as well as review articles that seek the study on the design, performances, and applications of the focusing X-ray optics. We are interested in articles on the applications of the focusing X-ray optics in such realms which cause public concern as environmental, biology, medicine, food, and so on. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

·                     Fabrication of focusing X-ray optics

·                     Characterization of focusing X-ray optics

·                     Application of focusing X-ray optics based on conventional laboratory X-ray sources

·                     Application of focusing X-ray optics based on synchrotron radiation

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at according to the following timetable:
