We have shown that the dispersion properties of diamond provide an effective spatial separation of characteristic X-ray lines with photon energies of ~ 10 keV in the reflection of the radiation by the edge of a polished plate in the range of grazing angles below 1°. This makes it possible to analyze the spectrum of directional beams from continuous and pulsed radiation sources and monochromatize the spectrum in measuring schemes where thin ribbon-shaped beams are involved.
