Abstract

We created a simple simulation model of transmitted X-rays in polycapillary optics for improved understanding of the transmission characteristics and to aid in the design of the geometrical parameters of the polycapillary optics. New polycapillary optics for a 64-pixel array transition-edge sensor (TES) microcalorimeter energy-dispersive spectrometer system that was installed in a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) were developed using the simulation model. The characteristic X-rays that are emitted from the STEM specimen were transmitted and focused on the pixel array TES microcalorimeter by the polycapillary optics. The experimental X-ray transmission characteristics of the manufactured polycapillary optics agreed with the simulated results.
