2. Focusing
Microscopy
Object placed close to
secondary source:
=> strong magnification
The smaller the focus,
the sharper the image!
Spectroscopy, tomography
large depth of field
scanning beam over sample
(diffraction, SAXS, XAS,
fluorescence…)

Small focus requires
1. small source
2. long distance L1 source-lens
3. small focal length and large effective aperture of lens

b. Focusing with Be lens at energies as low as 2keV
ID12 at ESRF
(A. Rogalev)
gain in intensity on sample at 2 keV:
factor 500 compared to situation without lens!

c. Prefocusing with linear lenses
R = 200 to 1000µm,
Be, Al and Ni
length 2.5 mm
* collecting more intensity
* for making spot on sample more circular (on storage rings)

Focusing with 2 independent linear lenses in cross-geometry
• Ratio of horizontal to vertical source size in storage rings:
20 and more
=>elongated spot on sample
• Generation of more circular spot size by astigmatic imaging
of source via 2 independent linear lenses in cross geometry
• Example: experiment at DIAMOND Light Source
by A. Snigirev et al
with 1D Be from RXOPTICS

3. Coherent flux
* diffraction of individual large molecules, nanoparticles
* speckle spectroscopy
Illuminated area on sample must be smaller than the lateral coherence
area at the sample position. Then all monochromatic photons are
undistinguishable, i.e. they are in the same mode!
* coherent photon flux is a property of the brillance B of the
source and of the degree of monochromaticity


* the coherent flux can at best be conserved, it cannot be
increased by a focusing optic.

3. remedy for horizontal direction
* insert a linear lens (prefocussing lens) which focuses
only in the horizontal
* the secondary source S‘ must have a lateral coherence length
at the postion of lens 2 which is equal to the effective
aperture of lens2.

Prefocusing lens
Be linear: R = 500µm, N = 55,
f = 3.854m, Deff = 1048µm
Image S‘ at b1 = 4.168m behind horizontal lens
lateral (horizontal) coherence length at position of lens 2:
295µm
this is equal to Deff of lens 2: only the coherent flux passes
through lens 2, the rest is peeled off.
gain in flux (compared to no prefocusing): about factor 10.

Coherent Imaging (Ptychography)
(see talk by F. Seiboth, C. Schroer)
* illuminate sample coherently in a small spot by means of
Be-lenses
* Scan this microfocus over sample with overlaping
neighboring scans
* take a diffraction image on each position
* overlap of images allows for reconstruction of the object
when each spot is illuminated coherently
 Our Be lenses preserve coherence well enough to give
a resolution which is 10 times better than the spot size!
