Abstract: In this work the results on X-ray micro-imaging by means of novel polycapillary optical elements will be presented. To simulate various radiation propagation processes in both single capillary and polycapillary systems, a PolyCAD code was developed. The new experimental results on radiation redistribution by novel capillary lenses in comparison with simulated data will be reported. The images of characterized extended samples (~ 3 mm) were recorded with 6 ?m resolution, the maximum provided by CCD.
