Title: 428th Brookhaven Lecture. Lighthouses, Light Sources and the Kinoform Route to 1nm

Abstract

At Brookhaven Lab, 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.
