An advanced wave-optical approach for simulating a monochromator-analyzer set-up in Bragg geometry with high accuracy is presented. The polychromaticity of the incident wave on the monochromator is accounted for by using a distribution of incoherent point sources along the surface of the crystal. The resulting diffracted amplitude is modified by the sample and can be well represented by a scalar representation of the optical field where the limitations of the usual 'weak object' approximation are removed. The subsequent diffraction mechanism on the analyzer is described by the convolution of the incoming wave with the Green-Riemann function of the analyzer. The free space propagation up to the detector position is well reproduced by a classical Fresnel-Kirchhoff integral. The preliminary results of this innovative approach show an excellent agreement with experimental data.

Abstract

An advanced wave-optical approach for simulating a monochromator-analyzer set-up in Bragg geometry with high accuracy is presented. The polychromaticity of the incident wave on the monochromator is accounted for by using a distribution of incoherent point sources along the surface of the crystal. The resulting diffracted amplitude is modified by the sample and can be well represented by a scalar representation of the optical field where the limitations of the usual 'weak object' approximation are removed. The subsequent diffraction mechanism on the analyzer is described by the convolution of the incoming wave with the Green-Riemann function of the analyzer. The free space propagation up to the detector position is well reproduced by a classical Fresnel-Kirchhoff integral. The preliminary results of this innovative approach show an excellent agreement with experimental data.
