Latest X-ray optics Stories
A new idea to use super-polished silicon wafers as the heart of a telescope is set to reveal more of the hot, high-energy Universe, peering back into its turbulent history.
A team headed by Stefan Eisebitt has developed a new X-ray holography method that will enable snap-shots of dynamic processes at highest spatial resolution.
The world's sharpest X-ray beam shines at DESY. At the X-ray light source PETRA III, scientists from Göttingen generated a beam with a diameter of barely 5 nanometres – this is ten thousand times thinner than a human hair.
When silicon wafers are stacked together precisely by the thousand they promise to deliver astronomyâ€™s clearest X-ray view yet of the most violent regions of space.
Zone Plate Lenses Capable of Better than 15-Nanometer Resolution.
