A point x-ray emission was obtained from a diode configuration composed of a graphite-nanofiber cold cathode and a conical-shaped copper metal anode. When combined with a highly sensitive charge coupled device (CCD) camera with a scintillator, this x-ray source was then used to obtain x-ray transmission images of a tungsten mesh and an x-ray test chart. The spatial resolution of this x-ray radiography system was on the order of 10 µm and the acquisition time for these images was less than 10 s. This combination of the point x-ray source and the sensitive detection system offers a high-resolution x-ray radiography system.

    A new method is proposed for nanoscale hard x-ray measurements. This method uses a reflection on a heavy-metal wire that functions as a single slit with a nanoscale aperture for a parallel x-ray beam. This “nanoslit” can be used to perform high-spatial-resolution measurements of the...
