Paper Abstract

We have developed a generic X-ray tracing toolbox based on Geant4, a generic simulation toolkit. By leveraging the facilities available on Geant4, we are able to design and analyze complex X-ray optical systems. In this article we describe our toolbox, and describe how it is being applied to support the development of silicon pore optics for IXO.
