I do not know much about x-ray physics or degenerate matter, but I have the intuitive feeling that the high electron density and what must be some crazy band structures in electron degenerate matter might give rise to a high x-ray reflectivity. So as a purely hypothetical question that suddenly struck me; does anyone who does know something about these topics think that you could bounce x-rays of white dwarfs?
