This standard applies to X-ray optical systems using capillary tubes for influencing the beam geometry of X-rays, particularly for focussing. The physical principles are briefly introduced. The mostly used designs like monocapillaries and polycapillaries are introduced and their functionality is described. The typical parameters of X-ray capillaries important for X-ray optics are elaborated. The main application fields are X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray diffractometry. This standard is directed towards users, developers and producers of X-ray optical systems who want to collimate or focus X-rays.
