Paper Abstract

Lithium promises to give refractive x-ray optics the highest possible transmission, aperture and intensity gain. Room-temperature embossing of lithium with parabolic dies from polypropylene produces lenses that focus well but are not yet good enough for imaging. X-ray measurements suggest two causes of problems, one of which one can be solved easily.
