Title: The Velociprobe: An ultrafast hard X-ray nanoprobe for high-resolution ptychographic imaging

Abstract

Motivated by the advanced photon source upgrade, a new hard X-ray microscope called "Velociprobe" has been recently designed and built for fast ptychographic imaging with high spatial resolution. We are addressing the challenges of high-resolution and fast scanning with novel hardware designs, advanced motion controls, and new data acquisition strategies, including the use of high-bandwidth interferometric measurements. The use of granite, air-bearing-supported stages provides the necessary long travel ranges for coarse motion to accommodate real samples and variable energy operation while remaining highly stable during fine scanning. Scanning the low-mass zone plate enables high-speed and high-precision motion of the probe over the sample. With an advanced control algorithm implemented in a closed-loop feedback system, the setup achieves a position resolution (3σ) of 2 nm. The instrument performance is evaluated by 2D fly-scan ptychography with our developed data acquisition strategies. A spatial resolution of 8.8 nm has been demonstrated on a Au test sample with a detector continuous frame rate of 200 Hz. Using a higher flux X-ray source provided by double-multilayer monochromator, we achieve 10 nm resolution for an integrated circuit sample in an ultrafast scan with a detector's full continuous frame rate of 3000 Hz (0.33 ms per exposure),more » resulting in an outstanding imaging rate of 9 x 104 resolution elements per second« less

The granite wedge that moves vertically is guided by the ball spline (5). The granite horizontal coarse X axis driver (6) sit on the vertical wedge, driving the granite horizontal block (7). The sample stack (8) sits on the granite coarse X block. The sample stack can be moved in X independently. The piezo driven optics stack (9) is hung from the granite gantry (10) which can be moved along beam direction (Z axis).« less
