Title: Characterization of a two-channel, high resolution hard x-ray microscope using Fresnel zone plates for laser-plasma interaction experiments

Abstract

New X-ray imaging techniques are currently being developed at the “Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives” in the context of Inertial Confinement Fusion. Fresnel zone plates (FZPs) are being considered as they can perform high-resolution and high-flux imaging in the X-ray domain. Here we present the characterization of a bi-lens FZPs resolution used in an imager prototype, designed for the LULI2000 laser facility. Characterization was performed on a synchrotron radiation facility and on a femtosecond laser facility. The resolution of the two FZP channels was measured to be between 2.4 μm and 5.2 μm and the expected total resolution for the diagnostic was to be 3.3 μm
