Beam-shaping condenser lenses for full-field transmission X-ray microscopy


Jefimovs, K; Vila-Comamala, J; Stampanoni, M; Kaulich, B; David, C (2008). Beam-shaping condenser lenses for full-field transmission X-ray microscopy. Journal of Synchrotron Radiation, 15(Pt 1):106-108.

Abstract

A new type of diffractive X-ray optical elements is reported, which have been used as beam-shaping condenser lenses in full-field transmission X-ray microscopes. These devices produce a square-shaped flat-top illumination on the sample matched to the field of view. The size of the illumination can easily be designed depending on the geometry and requirements of the specific experimental station. Gold and silicon beam-shapers have been fabricated and tested in full-field microscopes in the hard and soft X-ray regimes, respectively.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
