Development and applications of scanning/transmission X-ray microscopy with coherent X-rays

Research Project Outline

We develop an adaptive optical focusing system that allows synchrotron radiation X-rays to be utilized without loss of coherence and flux, and applied it to the construction of a microscope system. In this system, the size of an X-ray beam can be varied from microscale to nanoscale by controlling its wavefront. We incorporate this focusing method into a scanning/transmission X-ray microscope system that enables the simultaneous visualization of electron density, elements and chemical bonding states.
