Optical Correction of X-Ray Laser Illumination for Short-Wavelength Microscopy

Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY, volume 147)


A critical aspect in the design of a short-wavelength microscope is the illumination profile and stability. Experimental measurements of the pointing stability and divergence and optical corrections of X-ray laser source are shown. The optical corrections provided one order of magnitude improvement in the illumination performance.
