Preliminary experiments by use of a multilayer Fresnel zone plate (FZP) have been performed for bright-field imaging at 25kev hard X-rays. The #1500 gold mesh was selected as a test specimen. The mesh structure has been successfully observed in the bright-field images.

    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...

    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...

    Soft X-ray microscopes require high-spatial-resolution Fresnel zone plates with high and uniform diffraction efficiency as imaging optics. The combination of the zone height for optimal diffraction efficiency with the fact that the first-order spatial resolution of a zone plate scales linearly...

    Zone plates with high spatial resolution and high diffraction efficiency are required as objectives for X-ray microscopes. In the energy region of 2-8 keV gold is a well suited material for highly efficient zone plates. In this work a process for Ni zone plates is extended for the fabrication of...

    A phase zone plate made of tantalum has been designed and fabricated for focusing hard x-rays. It is designed to optically match to the undulator radiation of the BL24XU at the SPring-8. Its focusing properties were measured. The focused beam size smaller than 1 μm was obtained at the photon...

    We describe the use of a commercial e-beam lithography system (JEOL JBX-6000FS) to fabricate Fresnel zone plates for x-ray microscopy. The machine is capable of controlling the pitch of optical gratings with sub-nanometer precision, so its beam placement properties are more than adequate for...
