A dynamic diffraction theory of x-ray emission by relativistic electron crossing a finite-thickness multilayer mirror was discussed. Simple formulas describing the characteristics of the total emission from either thin nonabsorbing or thick absorbing multilayers were presented. The possibility of a tunable quasimonochromatic x-ray source whose efficiency was larger than that of other x-ray sources was also elaborated.
