We demonstrate full-field X-ray microscopy using crossed multilayer Laue lenses (MLL). Two partial MLLs are prepared out of a 48 μm high multilayer stack consisting of 2451 alternating zones of WSi2 and Si. They are assembled perpendicularly in series to obtain two-dimensional imaging. Experiments are done in a laboratory X-ray microscope using Cu-Kα(More)
We investigate the influence of the Mo-layer thickness on the EUV reflectance of Mo/Si mirrors with a set of unpolished and interface-polished Mo/Si/C multilayer mirrors. The Mo-layer thickness is varied in the range from 1.7 nm to 3.05 nm. We use a novel combination of specular and diffuse intensity measurements to determine the interface roughness(More)
A tunable two-color multilayer Bragg coating capable of simultaneously reflecting the fundamental and the third harmonic of an x-ray free-electron laser at the same angle and with high reflectance R>0.70 is presented. The novel coating will enable two-color x-ray pump/x-ray probe experiments. This mirror consists of a Si substrate that is coated with two(More)
Point focusing measurements using pairs of directly bonded crossed multilayer Laue lenses (MLLs) are reported. Several flat and wedged MLLs have been fabricated out of a single deposition and assembled to realise point focusing devices. The wedged lenses have been manufactured by adding a stress layer onto flat lenses. Subsequent bending of the structure(More)
We have developed a multilayer mirror for extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation that has low reflectance for IR radiation at 10.6 mum wavelength. The mirror is based on a multilayer coating comprising alternating layers of diamondlike carbon and silicon, for which we demonstrate an EUV reflectance of up to 49.7%. We have made a functional prototype in which(More)
Two different multilayer Laue lens designs were made with total deposition thicknesses of 48 µm and 53 µm, and focal lengths of 20.0 mm and 12.5 mm at 20.0 keV, respectively. From these two multilayer systems, several lenses were manufactured for one- and two-dimensional focusing. The latter is realised with a directly bonded assembly of two crossed lenses,(More)
