A compound refractive lens for focusing high-energy X-rays
THE development of techniques for focusing X-rays has occupied physicists for more than a century. Refractive lenses, which are used extensively in visible-light optics, are generally consideredExpand

On the possibilities of x-ray phase contrast microimaging by coherent high-energy synchrotron radiation
Coherent properties of the x-ray beam delivered at the ESRF allow the observation of very weak perturbations of the wave front, resulting in the phase contrast. A straightforward experimental setupExpand
