Paper Abstract

The use of laser-plasma generated soft x rays for contact microscopy offers several advantages over electron microscopy. After chemical development the exposed photoresist can be examined by interference light, scanning electron, or atomic force microscopy. The advantages and disadvantages of each are briefly described and biologically significant results using soft x-ray contact microscopy, followed by examination of the resist by atomic force microscopy, are presented.
