X-Rays Beam Condensation by Confinement in a Thin Crystal
We have observed condensation of X-rays emitted from an edge of a thin Ge parallel crystal, using X-rays from synchrotron radiation. When highly parallel X-rays with the energy near an absorption edge of an atom or a nucleus are incident on a thin crystal in the Bragg case, a part of X-rays is confined in the crystal and do not come out either from the top or the bottom surface. The density of confined beam increases as the width of the incident beam is increased. The confined beam can come out from an edge of a thin crystal with higher density than the incident beam.
