Debris-free Laser-plasma Soft X-Ray Source for Microscopy.

Rymell, Lars (1995)
Abstract
This thesis describes the initial development of a new high-brightness table-top soft X-ray

source suitable for microscopy. The laser-plasma utilises liquid droplets as targets and the

absolute line emission in the water window (A-=2.3-4.4 nm) is typically 1·1012

photons/(stedine·pulse). The narrow bandwidth radiation makes the source suitable for

zone plate optics used in microscopy. Compared to conventional laser-plasma targets the

debris emission is more than 3 orders of magnitude less. By the use of a localised gas

shield the debris deposition may be reduced another order of magnitude.
