Paper Abstract

We report progress in two areas of technology relevant to the development of high-resolution x-ray microscopy techniques based on laser plasma x-ray sources for the analysis of wet and dry biological specimens. The approach we discuss involves the use of ultrashort x-ray emission from a laser plasma source. Precision x-ray optics are used to collimate and filter this light onto the specimen. Imaging and image magnification are accomplished with a combination of x-ray and electron-optical systems. We discuss our progress towards establishing a flexible laser-plasma x-ray source for the development of biological imaging and contact microscopy, and progress we have made towards the development of an electro-optical imaging system having high magnification and spatial resolution.
