  1. 1. Nanofabrication of Diffractive Soft X-ray Optics

    Author : Magnus Lindblom; Hans M. Hertz; Erik H. Anderson; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Nanofabrication; Zone plate; x-ray; diffractive x-ray optics; x-ray microscopy; Optics; Optik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis summarizes the present status of the nanofabrication of diffractive optics, i.e. zone plates, and test objects for soft x-ray microscopy at KTH. The emphasis is on new and improved fabrication processes for nickel and germanium zone plates. READ MORE

    Author : Michael Bertilson; Hans Hertz; Gerd Schneider; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Microscopy; X-ray optics; Diffractive optics; Zone plates; X-ray microscopy; Soft X-ray physics; Tomography; Optics; Optik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Soft x-ray microscopy in the water-window (λ = 2.28 nm – 4.36 nm) is based on zone-plate optics and allows high-resolution imaging of, e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Coherent Diffractive Imaging with X-ray Lasers

    Author : Max Felix Hantke; Filipe R. N. C. Maia; Janos Hajdu; Martin Svenda; Edgar Weckert; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; coherent diffractive X-ray imaging; lensless imaging; coherent X-ray diffractive imaging; flash diffractive imaging; single particle imaging; aerosol injection; electrospray injection; substrate-free sample delivery; carboxysome; phase retrieval; X-ray diffraction software; X-ray free-electron laser; XFEL; FEL; CXI; CDI; CXDI; FXI;

    Abstract : The newly emerging technology of X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) has the potential to revolutionise molecular imaging. XFELs generate very intense X-ray pulses and predictions suggest that they may be used for structure determination to atomic resolution even for single molecules. READ MORE

  4. 4. Phase-Contrast and High-Resolution Optics for X-Ray Microscopy

    Author : Olof von Hofsten; Ulrich Vogt; Ian McNulty; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Microscopy; X-ray optics; X-ray microscopy; Soft X-ray physics; Optics; Optik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : X-ray microscopy is a well-established technique for nanoscale imaging. Zone plates are used as microscope objectives and provide high resolution, approaching 10 nm, currently limited by fabrication issues. This Thesis presents zone plate optics that achieve either high resolution or phase contrast in x-ray microscopy. READ MORE

  5. 5. Compact Soft X-Ray Microscopy : Sources, Optics and Instrumentation

    Author : Per Takman; Hans Hertz; Janos Kirz; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; soft x-ray microscopy; water window; compact; laser plasma; liquid jet; zone plate optics; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the development of a sub-60-nm full-period resolution compact soft x-ray microscope operating in the water-window region (2.3-4.4 nm). Soft x-ray water-window microscopy is a powerful technique for high-resolution imaging of organic materials exploiting the natural contrast mechanism between carbon and oxygen, cf. READ MORE
