ABSTRACT
Semi-analytical approach based on the parabolic wave equation (PWE) has been developed for simulation of X-ray optical elements. Using it one can easily obtain spatial resolution, diffraction efficiency and field of view of realistic X-ray zone plates. Calculations reveal new unexpected features, absent for idealized thin zone plates.

    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...

    We are developing a new hard x-ray nanoprobe beamline with 30 nm resolution at the Advanced Photon Source (APS). Imaging and spectroscopy at this resolution level require staging of x-ray optics and specimens with a mechanical repeatability of better than 10 nm. We have developed a prototype...

    X-ray optics, such as zone plates, are often used to obtain a spatial resolution better than 100 nm in x-ray projection images. Such types of optics are not always suited for tomographic imaging due to their limited depth of focus, which restricts the size of the specimen to a few microns. To...

    We present a variety of diffractive and refractive x-ray optics developed for imaging and microfocusing applications at synchrotron beam lines covering almost three orders of magnitude in photon energy from the EUV to hard x-rays.
