Performance of a Ru/C multilayer polarizer of double-crystal x-ray monochromator type has been evaluated in the soft x-ray region using synchrotron radiation. The throughput efficiencies for s-polarized light were found to be 11.5% at 100 eV and higher than 4% over an energy range of 80-150 eV without higher-order contamination. Its polarizance was higher than 99.0% at 88 eV and more than 94% over a range of 80-110 eV.
