A new technique for making a high resolution X-ray analyzer is presented. The analyzer consists of a silicon wafer with <111> orientation, a Pyrex glass wafer and a concave polished Pyrex glass substrate. The energy resolution of the analyzer was studied on the inelastic scattering beamline of the Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation Collaborative Access Team on sector 3 of the APS using the Si(777) back reflection at 13.84 keV. Details are presented and compared with other techniques, and we discuss contributions of the measured energy resolution.
