Towards compact x-ray microscopy with liquid-nitrogen-jet laser-plasma source
2006 (English)In: Proceedings of 8th International Conference on X-ray Microscopy, 2006, 12-14 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this contribution we present source properties and design considerations for a compact x-ray microscope operating in the water-window spectral region at 2.48 nm. The microscope will use a liquid-nitrogen-jet laser-plasma source with sufficient brightness, uniformity, stability and reliability for microscopy operation. The source is quantitatively characterized by calibrated slitgrating spectroscopy and zone-plate imaging to determine absolute photon numbers and source size and stability. Calculations including sources parameters as well as characteristics of available x-ray optics indicate that high-quality microscope images can be obtained with exposure times in the range of few minutes.
