Paper Abstract

Gas-bubble superlattices produced in certain metals upon ion implantation of inert gases are treated for the first time regarded as weak 3D photonic crystals for the soft x-ray radiation. Computations based on electromagnetic transfer matrix method show that the bcc superlattices of helium bubbles in molybdenum with the lattice constant of 5.0 nm and bubble diameters of 2.4 and 3.0 nm will exhibit selective reflection of soft x-rays with wavelengths around to 10 nm. The reflectivity peaks have relative widths of less than one per cent and peak values in the range of 2- 15%, depending on the bubble size and helium concentration in bubbles and in the metal host.
