    X-ray diffractive techniques using Fresnel zone plate lenses of various forms are of great technical interest because of their ability to form images at very high spatial resolution, but the zone plates are unfortunately very hard to produce by lithography. Alternatively, multilayer Laue lenses...

    Fresnel zone plates for x-ray focusing optics are typically made using lithographic techniques. To achieve optimum efficiency for hard x rays, a depth of several microns is required, which limits the minimum zone width and hence minimum focal spot size achievable using lithography. We are...
