Paper Abstract

Methods of designing strong, high transmission soft x-ray windows are discussed. A material which contains several elements, most notably 0, N, and C, produce the most spectrally neutral window. It is noted that a predominantly single element material such as diamond is in reality an edge filter. A structure to support very thin films and to provide exceptional mechanical strength is discussed. Pressure cycling data for such a supported window are presented.
