X-ray microscope optics resolve 50-nm features while eliminating chromatic aberrations



Osaka, Japan (SPX) May 04, 2017
X-ray microscopes are commonly used in combination with full-field imaging techniques in spectromicroscopy applications, where they allow the chemical structures of materials to be analyzed and visualized simultaneously. However, the performance of these microscopes is often affected by problems with chromatic aberrations - optical effects that limit the resolution or degree of fineness to which images of the material structures can be acquired - and previous solutions to the problem have often pr ... read more
