A Sharper Focus for Soft x-rays

Abstract:
Progress in nanoscience and nanotechnology depends not only on examining the surfaces of things but on seeing deep inside biological organisms and material structures to identify what they're made of and what electronic, magnetic, optical, and chemical processes may be in play.

Now a new method for creating optical devices with nanoscale accuracy has allowed researchers in Berkeley Lab's Center for X‑Ray Optics (CXRO), which built and operates the XM-1, to achieve an extraordinary resolution of better than 15 nanometers, with the promise of even higher resolution in the near future.
