    • Abstract


      We discuss and compare the imaging characteristics of toroidal and ellipsoidal mirrors for different horizontal acceptances of synchrotron radiation source Indus-1; using a ray tracing method. It has been shown that the toroidal and ellipsoidal mirrors have similar focussing behaviour at small horizontal acceptances. For large horizontal acceptances, toroidal mirror shows an asymmetry in the focussed image. Though the data used here are for Indus-1, the results are generally valid for any bending magnet synchrotron radiation source incident at grazing angles on these mirrors.
