Paper Abstract

Results of the first experiment in which Bragg diffraction of a focused x-ray beam was utilized to obtain depth sensitive structural information are presented. Silicon-on-insulator (SOI) layers of 4.5 to 25 μm thick were studied. The beam was focused by a circular zone plate. A beam stop and an order sorting aperture were used to reduce the contribution of the background radiation into diffracted intensity. Diffraction patterns were recorded by a CCD detector placed in the focus of the zone plate. Spatial distributions of the recorded intensity in the scattering plane revealed variations of the lattice constant within the layers. Incoherent scattering was observed out of the scattering plane thus providing a new method to study diffuse scattering. Computer simulations of the intensity patterns produced by the interface between two layers with the lattice constant mismatch are presented.
