ABSTRACT
Fresnel zone plates have been highly successful as focusing and imaging optics for soft x-ray microscopes and microprobes. More recently, with the advent of third-generation high-energy storage rings, zone plates for the hard x-ray regime have been put to use as well. The performance of zone plates manufactured using a combination of electron-beam lithography and x-ray lithography is described.

    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...
