We describe a tunable multilayer monochromator with an adjustable bandpass to be used for reflectivity and grazing incidence diffraction studies on surfaces at energies near 10 keV. Multilayers have a bandpass typically 100 times larger than the Si(111) reflection, and by using multilayers an experimenter can significantly increase data collection rates over those available with a Si monochromator. The transmission through 1 and 2 laterally graded multilayer (LGML) reflections was recorded versus photon energy. The identical LGMLs were comprised of 60 bilayers of W and C on 100 X 25 X 3 mm float glass with a bilayer spacing varying from 35 to 60 angstrom. The average gradient was 0.27 angstrom/mm along the long dimension. The rms deviation of the data for the bilayer spacing from a linear fit was 0.36 angstrom. Data were obtained for a nondispersive (plus or minus) double-multilayer arrangement. The relative bandpass width (FWHM) when the two multilayers exposed the same bilayer spacing was measured to be 2.2% with a transmission of 78.7 plus or minus 1.6%. This value is consistent with the transmission of 88.9% that we also measured for a single LGML at HASYLAB beamline D4. The bandpass was tunable in the range 1.1% to 2.2%.
