Abstract [en]

Refractive x-ray lenses with a triangular surface profile have been used to focus a synchrotron beam to sub-mum line width. These lenses are free from spherical aberration and work in analogy with one-dimensional focusing parabolic compound refractive lenses. However, the focal length can be easily varied by changing the gap between the two jaws. Silicon lenses were fabricated by wet anisotropic etching, and epoxy replicas were molded from the silicon masters. The lenses provided intensity gains up to a factor of 32 and the smallest focal line width was 0.87 mum. The simplified geometry and associated fabrication technique open possibilities for low-Z materials such as beryllium, which should greatly enhance the performance of refractive x-ray optics.
