Title: Lighthouses, Light Sources, and Kinoform Hard X-Ray Optics (428th Brookhaven Lecture)

BNL's planned National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) is designed to be a world-leading light source facility, promising advances in nanoscience, energy, biology, and materials research. In desmore »igning and developing this new facility, breakthrough research is a must to ensure that appropriate tools are available for the new science that will be studied. At BNL, a team of researchers has overcome a major x-ray focusing obstacle to allow the study of molecules, atoms, and advanced materials at the nanoscale, which is on the order of billionths of a meter. Their innovative method uses a type of refractive lens called a kinoform lens --similar to the kind found in lighthouses -- in order to focus the x-rays down to the extremely small spots needed for a sharp image at small dimensions.« less
