The development of two types of X-ray microscopy applying to the organic objects investigation (biological samples and polymer matrix) is reported. Polymer track membranes were investigated using Schwarzchild X-ray microscope with 20 nm wavelength. Pore diameters down to 0.2 μm were clearly imaged. Contact X-ray microscopy at 0.229 nm wavelength was used to obtain clear images of inner structure of native biological samples. High contrast together with the high resolution (about 2-3μm) allowed us to use this method for quantitative analysis of demineralization process taking place in the skeleton of amphibious after several weeks of weightlessness on biosputnik board.

    At the ESRF micro-fluorescence, imaging and diffraction (μ-FID) beamline ID 22, a microimaging and tomography setup has been operational for several months. The coherence properties of the high-energy X-ray undulator beam at ID 22 make the setup especially suited for phase-contrast tomography...
