Paper Abstract

In terms of achievable spatial resolutions, the most successful optics used to date for x-ray imaging have been zone plates that can be now be made with outermost zone widths of less than 25 nm. Techniques for the manufacture of these optical elements are reviewed and potential future improvements are considered. Some recent applications of zone plate optics are discussed.
