Fabrication and characterization of free-standing, high-line-density transmission gratings for the vacuum UV to soft X-ray range.


We present state-of-the-art high resolution transmission gratings, applicable for spectroscopy in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) and the soft X-ray (SRX) wavelength range, fabricated with a novel process using ultraviolet based nano imprint lithography (UV-NIL). Free-standing, high-line-density gratings with up to 10,000 lines per mm and various space-to… (More)
