Abstract

To realize coherent x-ray diffraction microscopy with higher spatial resolution, it is necessary to increase the density of x-ray photons illuminated onto the sample. In this study, we developed a coherent x-ray diffraction apparatus with Kirkpatrick-Baez mirror optics. By using mirrors fabricated by elastic emission machining, a high-density coherent x-ray beam was produced. In a demonstration experiment using a silver nanocube as a sample, a high-contrast coherent x-ray diffraction pattern was observed over a wide-q range. This proves that both the density and the degree of coherence of the focused beam were high.
