Coherent x-ray diffractive microscopy enables full reconstruction of the complex transmission function of an isolated object to diffraction-limited resolution without relying on any optical elements between the sample and detector. In combination with ptychography, also specimens of unlimited lateral extension can be imaged. Here we report on an application(More)

Amorphous (a) and nanocomposite Ti-Si-C coatings were deposited at rates up to 16 μm/h by direct current magnetron sputtering from a Ti3SiC2 compound target, using an industrial pilot-plant system, onto high-speed steel, Si, and SiO2 substrates as well as Niplated Cu cylinders, kept at a temperature of 200 or 270 °C. Electron microscopy, x-ray photoelectron(More)
The spatial coherence of free-electron laser radiation in the water window spectral range was studied, using the third harmonic (λ<(3rd) = 2.66 nm) of DESY's Free-electron LASer in Hamburg (FLASH). Coherent single pulse diffraction patterns of 1,2-Dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DOPC) multilamellar lipid stacks have been recorded. The intensity(More)

Sputter deposition from a Ti2AlC target was found to yield Ti-Al-C films with a composition that deviates from the target composition of 2:1:1. For increasing substrate temperature from ambient to 1000 °C, the Al content decreased from 22 at% to 5 at%, due to re-evaporation. The C content in as-deposited films was equal to or higher than the Ti content.(More)
Cubic rock salt structure Al0.60Cr0.40N and Al0.68Cr0.32N films of different thicknesses were grown epitaxially onto MgO(111) substrates by reactive unbalanced magnetron sputtering at 500°C. Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy reveals stoichiometric nitrides with Al/Cr ratios close to the ones of the used compound targets of 60/40 and 70/30. High(More)
