ABSTRACT
We investigate the diffraction properties of sectioned multilayers in Laue (transmission) geometry, at hard x-ray energies (9.5 and 19.5 keV). Two samples are studied, a W/Si multilayer of 200×(29 nm) periods, and a Mo/Si multilayer of 2020×(7 nm) periods, with cross-section depths ranging from 2 to 17 μm. Reflectivities as high as 70% are observed. This exceeds the theoretical limit for standard zone plates operating in the multibeam regime, demonstrating that all of the intensity can be directed into a single diffraction order in small-period structures.
