Abstract
Tapered glass capillaries are simple devices which have been used to concentrate x-rays. Micron-sized x-ray beams were produced using a variety of gradually tapered capillaries. Intensity gains ranging from 14 to 35 are reported using 6-keV synchrotron radiation. Data is presented demonstrating the potential of such devices as x-ray beam steering devices. In addition, a white-beam experiment is reported showing that tapered capillaries may be used as x-ray imaging components.
