    Tungsten is a material well suited for the fabrication of diffractive optics intended for use at high (multi KeV) X-ray energies. It is however a particularly difficult material to deposit, especially when relatively thick (<500 nm) films on thin membranes are needed. In such a case, deposition...

    The major obstacle for constructing a deep UV or X-ray lens is the low refraction and high absorption of materials in this region. Only a few Fresnel zones are utilized, so the diameter of an X-ray lens is of the order few microns, and the resolution is hardly better than that of a pinhole. The...
