Abstract

We present and demonstrate the use of an extreme ultraviolet (EUV) microscope that was developed in-house. Images are acquired using Bragg reflection multilayer optics and a laser-produced plasma light source. The upper-limit spatial resolution of the EUV microscope is 130 nm with a 10 ns exposure time and 250 x 250 μm2 field of view. Resolution is superior to that of visible microscopes with the same size of field of view, and the exposure time is short enough to observe fine structures in-vivo. Observation of the cerebral cortex of a mouse is demonstrated.
