Abstract [en]

This work investigates the properties of off-axis focusing of prism-array lenses. Raytracing simulations are in agreement with measurements on a planar silicon prism-array lens at 13.4 keV. The simulations show that refractions and reflections on the paraxial side of the prisms cause scattering. This geometric scattering is the main impacting factor when focusing sources that are off the optical axis. For low-attenuating materials it also limits the effective aperture on axis. A new analytical model that is able to predict the amount of scattering is presented. Such a model is for example useful when optimising optical systems, but also to understand the limits and possibilities prism-array lenses.
