A newly designed 100-mm-long X-ray trichrome optics for imaging has been proposed. Its working X-ray photon energy is 35 keV. Since this optics has two alternate mirrors, it can simultaneously supply three types of images: absorption, phaseinterference and angle-resolved contrast for a sample space of 7 mm width. Examples of imaging by this novel X-ray interferometer in medicine, biology and material science are presented.
