Paper Abstract

Recently, we have been able to fabricate high quality parabolic refractive x-ray lenses made of beryllium. We report first experimental results in both full field microscopy and microbeam production using these new lenses. In full field microscopy, undistorted images of test patterns were recorded in a field of view of 450 μm full width half maximum at 12keV with 10 fold magnification. A significant improvement of the lateral resolution as compared to imaging with aluminium refractive lenses was achieved. Microbeam characteristics were determined at 12keV demagnifying a high β undulator source 82 times. The lateral beam size was measured by fluorescence knife-edge. Microbeam characteristics, such as flux, lateral beam size, and low intensity background are discussed.
