Preliminary Comparison of Monolithic and Aperture Optics for XRMF
close lid, 4) observe count rate, 5) open lid, 6) move capillary by hand, 7) repeat steps 2 through
6 until count rate is maximized. Without live feedback of the count rate, the process becomes
quite tedious. Small movements in the x and y positions of the capillary done by hand are also a

hindrance in achieving the proper alignment. This is another mechanical engineering aspect,
which must be addressed for optimal performance. However, these alignment difficulties do not
preclude the use of a monolithic capillary within the Omicron.
Figure 5 shows the potential for increased sensitivity in quantitative analysis. The
