Hard X-ray fluorescence microscopy is one of the most sensitive techniques for performing trace elemental analysis of biological samples such as whole cells and tissues. Conventional sample preparation methods usually involve dehydration, which removes cellular water and may consequently cause structural collapse, or invasive processes such as embedding.(More)
Scanning X-ray microscopy focuses radiation to a small spot and probes the sample by raster scanning. It allows information to be obtained from secondary signals such as X-ray fluorescence, which yields an elemental mapping of the sample not available in full-field imaging. The analysis and interpretation from these secondary signals can be considerably(More)
of Stony Brook built a zone-plate-based scanning transmission x-ray microscope (STXM) at beamline U15 on the 750 MeV VUV ring that started operation in 1983 [2]; Malcolm Howells and collaborators started experiments in x-ray holography [3]; and David Sayre and collaborators started experiments in diffraction-based imaging [4,5].
