Title: Hard x-ray scanning imaging achieved with bonded multilayer Laue lenses

Abstract

Here, we report scanning hard x-ray imaging with a monolithic focusing optic consisting of two multilayer Laue lenses (MLLs) bonded together. With optics pre-characterization and accurate control of the bonding process, we show that a common focal plane for both MLLs can be realized at 9.317 keV. Using bonded MLLs, we obtained a scanning transmission image of a star test pattern with a resolution of 50 × 50 nm 2. By applying a ptychography algorithm, we obtained a probe size of 17 × 38 nm 2 and an object image with a resolution of 13 × 13 nm 2. Finally, the significant reduction in alignment complexity for bonded MLLs will greatly extend the application range in both scanning and full-field x-ray microscopies.
